Zenon Jepras Art Exhibition

Cyprus : Zenon Jepras Art Exhibition

On Wednesday 6 June at 7:30pm, Morfi gallery in Limassol presents the new work of Zenon Jepras.

Zenon Jepras was born in 1969 in Wales to Greek parents from Cyprus and Corfu. Consequently, he is the most famous Welsh-Greek artist in Cyprus. After reading Physics at University College London, he studied painting at Glasgow School of Art  and Cultural theory at Goldsmiths College, London. He lives and works in London.

Jepras is a storyteller who has come to dig into our past, to record our recollections and reconstruct them in order to offer us a form of archaeology of memory. Each work holds clues to deeper personal and social narratives, like skeletons hidden in the closet. His characters often take the form of animals for satirical effect; thus creating an ‘alternative world’ that serves to undermine socially dominant forces. What is particularly interesting is that his work is reminiscent of the post-expressionist movement of New Objectivism that emerged in the Weimar Republic of Germany and ended with the rise of Hitler to power. As George Grosz, Jepras turns his satirical eye towards what has proven to be a kind of hypocritical patriotism; on the ignorance and even indifference of laymen towards what was happening; on the greediness and corruption of the decades that led to the fall. Jepras looks upon his subjects with empathy; with a kind of nostalgia brought to him by his own upbringing as an emigrant; with acceptance and forgiveness. [Εxtract from Effi Kyprianidou]
