An anti-war activist, a socio-political commentator, an archivist of the urban landscape, and an observer of nature, Demetriades has been depicting the wonders, idiosyncrasies, and tragedy of Cyprus through the unique aesthetic he calls “Post-Pop Surrealism”. The exhibition will feature works from the whole span of the artist’s career and aims to shed light on the importance of motion to his practice. The role of motion is explored, through the choice of subject matters, and figuratively, through the concept of time, the evolution of the cityscape, and the artist’s open-ended dialogue with old master painters.

The exhibition is to feature paintings from important private collections, some of which have rarely been seen by the public, and the short animation film Cypriot Transfigurations which enjoyed considerable acknowledgement due to its aesthetic and contemporaneity, and whose second part came to fruition 35 years after the creation of the first. In the exhibition that will last until May 4, works from the collection of the Gallery of the Municipality of Limassol and private collections will be exhibited.
