ΚΕΝΤΡΟ ΤΕΧΝΩΝ ΚΙΜΩΝΟΣ
"To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow.
So do it."
'A man without a country'
Kimonos Art Center was founded in 2015 in Paphos, Cyprus by Charalambos Margaritis, Yiannis Sakellis, Nicolas Iordanou and Sylvia Nicolaides.
It aims to gather in its space a variety of techniques and make them available to the public through workshops and art classes. Our team, consists of Charalambos Margaritis, Yiannis Sakellis and Paris Christodoulou.
Printmaking, painting, drawing, photography, video art, animation and cementography are just some of them. Considering that the process of creation is an existential unchallengeable human right, a need, a necessary condition for ontological integration and perhaps the most important spiritual exercise, our goal is to create the conditions under which whoever wants or cares (or anyone who has nothing else to do) can deal with one or more forms of creativity or just browse through them, be inspired and learn.
It is intended to become a center for creativity, experimentation, search and discovery, exchange of ideas and suggestions, a place of inspiration and good company.
One of our goals is also to promote the emerging ideas and images from the local creators in Cyprus, as well as artists from around the world. It is above all a meeting place.
It is an attempt to create in Paphos something that should have existed since long ago. Kimonos Art Center aims to offer the possibility to create.
