From tattoos to paintings

lemons & waves exhibition

Best known on the island for his colourful tattoos, artist Kompi has recently been slowly making his name as a painter. Stuck in the house during the lockdown, much like the rest of the world, Kompi found the only way to escape from reality, while also mentally visit his favourite places in Cyprus, was through painting. Piece by piece, the idea to hold an exhibition started taking shape and now it is finally coming to life. From June 3 to 12 he will present his artwork at Exhibit 8 gallery in Limassol.

Lemons & Waves is Kompi’s second solo exhibition, and this one is fully dedicated to his beloved Cyprus. “From the camping site in Kato Pyrgos,” say the organisers, “to the mountains of Kakopetria, these unique paintings are for all the beach bums, the surfers, the water babies and those who simply appreciate the beauty of nature on the island.” Artworks of a variety of sizes and themes will be for sale in a beautiful atmosphere in the heart of Limassol’s city centre.
