Alexandros Grant Michaelides painting exhibition

Cyprus : Alexandros Grant Michaelides painting exhibition

Gloria Gallery presents the new work of Alexandros Grant Michaelides. The painting exhibition will open on Tuesday the 28th of March at 7.30 p.m.

Alexandros Grant Michaelides was born in Oxford in 1983 and was raised in Cyprus. He studied Fine Art first at Camberwell College of Arts (2004-2005) and then at Middlesex University (2005-2008). He obtained his Master degree, with a specialization in oil painting, from Canterbury Christ Church University (2011-2012).
He currently resides in Nicosia, where he works as an artist and as an art teacher. He has participated in group exhibitions in Cyprus, the UK and Finland, and has held a number of solo exhibitions in Cyprus.

The theme of this cycle of work is based on the worldwide and current problem of migration. It focuses specifically on the child migrant and seeks to explore the notions of joy and hope that may still exist, during the process of and after migration.

The emotion of sadness is evident through the children’s facial expressions but the layered and colourful application of oil paint, aims to project a playfulness and sense of hope that still remains. This attempts to come in contrast to the assumption that all migrants’ futures are negatively predetermined and that any parallel, positive emotions have ceased to exist.

The paintings may seem unpolished at places and somehow incomplete. This aims to give the viewer the sense of continuum and that one's future should not be presumed.

The exhibition opens on the 28th of March 2017 and will remain open until the 11th of April.
