Every now and then you come across an artist that captures your interest and imagination. Recently I was fortunate enough to meet such an artist. I had seen some of his amazing work adorning the walls of my sisters’ house and so enquired about him. She was good enough to take me to the Gallery that he and his wife Anja operate from. Theo was born in Cyprus but was brought up and lived in London for most of his life, and now he is back in Cyprus not a stones throw away from the Hospital he was born in.
Theo’s subject matter is broad. He is highly influenced by the Film Noir genre. From my personal favourite ‘The Blue Door’ to ‘Landscapes’, to’ Romance’. In my opinion he has a unique outlook to his work that is addictive. Once you have one of his creations you will be back for more, I know I will be.
I highly recommend that if you are in Cyprus, Larnaca specifically, to visit his gallery. The very least you will leave with is a smile. If you can’t come to Cyprus, have no fear, Theo and Anja ship Worldwide. To find out where the gallery is exactly, and to see his creations, a visit to his website is a must and well worth a look. I found it easy to navigate and spent a lot of time exploring it. In fact I often pop back in case I missed anything.
There is a bit in the ‘About us’ section that made me chuckle.
