Bio: George Mavros is a self-taught Cypriot artist, residing and working in Paphos. He is one of the few artists of Cyprus who creates his works in the naïve genre. The simplicity and frankness of his paintings is moving and appealing, it transfers you to the world of rural Cypriot close-knit community and shows you how people lived, what they liked and how they interacted. It is amazing that every painting has a true story of George’s relatives or friends behind the canvas. He paints from memory the moments that have deeply touched him, be it his father, the village’s blacksmith, in his workshop, or his grandma Evthokia, sitting by an old tree that had been planted in the same year when Evthokia was born.
