Telemachos Kanthos

In World War II, Telemachos Kanthos, following his studies in Athens where he studies printmaking at G. Kefallinos’ workshop, starts creating prints, mainly woodcuts, printing by hand. Since then, he is inspired by his country. He depicts landscapes and ordinary people of Cyprus, scenes from the traditional rural life, while the tragic modern history of the island, especially the invasion in 1974, gives to his woodcuts a dramatic nature through the simple expressiveness of his printmaking language.
