Painting - Oil On Canvas
Trying to include in my art works a painting of the history of Cyprus, I thought that a characteristic would be the religious influence left behind by each conqueror of the island as well as the depiction of wars that prevailed through the centuries. A history of many centuries full of wars and conquests.
A conqueror succeeded the other and the population had to endure and to hope that the next conqueror would be better than the precedent. However this was not the case as the conqueror preceding the last was about to be the worst for the history and the future of Cyprus. The Ottoman conquest was proven to be the worst because as a result was the invasion in 1974 and the occupation of 38% of the island.
The history of Greek culture has been alienated, destroyed and conquered by the Turkish intruder that tries to degrade and to eliminate and to impose his own culture ignoring a culture history of thousands of years. It is deplorable for a person to see the losses of his culture and for this reason I wanted with my own way to portray via the art a short optical retrospection of the past and the history of Cyprus.
