Artwork by Andreas C Chrysafis Artist/Author/Writer

March 19, 2017

Andreas C Chrysafis is a prolific artist, a published author, and a writer of over four hundred articles. Born in the village of Agios Ambrosios, Kyrenia, Cyprus, he began painting at a young age.
Chrysafis moved to the UK at age 12 where he completed his studies at Holland Park Comprehensive in London and though he was accepted at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music, he declined to attend. A former Associate Member of the Chartered Society of Designers (ABID) by Royal Charter, Chrysafis was an architectural designer for most of his professional career.

He is a UK Patent holder, environmentalist, and an advocate for Human Rights, Equality and Rule of Law. At age 21, he married Eva and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia. A Canadian and British citizen, Chrysafis has lived in Vancouver, London, and Cyprus.

One of his paintings, entitled Karagiozis, permanently hangs at the prestigious National Cyprus Folk Art Museum in Nicosia and his “N’oublie Pas Paris” in memory of the Bataclan atrocity, is displayed at the French Embassy in Nicosia.

He now spends most of his time living in the UK and his studio in Cyprus, painting works of art, writing novels, and articles. His new Andreas C Chrysafis Coffee Table Art Catalogue will be published in April and will be available online at Amazon.com and in bookstores around the world. His new novel, Aphrodite’s Sacred Virgins will also be published soon. Among Chrysafis’ novels now available online in paperback and eBook formats, Andartes is set in 1950’s Cyprus and recounts the struggle for freedom.

Porphyra in Purple is a science fiction/fantasy epic that follows the protagonists Nikolas and Christina, assisted by angelic life forms, as they journey to reach the heavens where they witness the infinite Porphyra at the Gates of Egress by the shores of the Forgetful River.

Chrysafis’ paintings are available for sale internationally by the acclaimed Saatchi Gallery Group.

*The Line Up by Andreas C Chrysafis. This is a scene found in places least expected – in affluent cities of powerful and wealthy countries. The painting represents people of all walks of life, who unwittingly find themselves in bread lines as social outcasts and victims of circumstances. They stand with humility waiting at The Line Up for charity and handouts.

**Aphrodite Urania by Andreas C Chrysafis. The birthplace of Aphrodite (Venus) on the shore of Petra tou Romiou in Cyprus has inspired ancient and modern writers, sculptors and artists for centuries. Aphrodite Urania goddess of fertility, beauty and love portray the most beautiful woman ever born to mystify males and females alike. Her mesmerizing image is infused with the landscape where she gracefully materializes out of the land and foam of the azure sea. This painting will be used as the cover of his forthcoming novel Aphrodite’s Sacred Virgins.
