The Cyprus High Commission cordially invites you to the opening of the art exhibition of “Contemporary Iconography” by Elena Papadopoulou.
Elena Papadopoulou was born in Limassol, Cyprus where she lives and works. She has been working as an icon painter since 1995. After having trained in wood preservation she started painting on wooden surfaces, carefully adapting the visual elements and figures of the hagiographic subject to the nature of the reclaimed wood (old doors and windows), taking into account the shape as well as the alterations of time on the wood’s texture. She has organized five solo exhibitions in Cyprus and abroad and has taken part in many group exhibitions. Her latest exhibition was inaugurated by the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr Nikos Anastasiades.
