Stass Paraskos’s Places
Cyprus College of Art
The private viewing at 33 Mehmet Ali Street, Larnaca continued throughout the week. Popping in on the Tuesday I noticed
the wonderful building was still throbbing with energy.
Every space was full of work. A whole room was full of paintings and drawings of nudes; some completed some in progress.
Artist and teacher Andros Efstathiou took me around.
"Founded in 1969 the Cyprus College of Art is unlike any other art college in Europe and offers a highly creative environment
in which students are treated first and foremost as adult human beings. Our courses are taught in small groups so tutors can
identify individual needs and help achieve ambitions in the worlds of art and design. Cyprus College of Art tutors are all
professional artists who exhibit around the world, and have work in collections raging from the State Collection of Modern
Art in Cyprus to the Tate Gallery in London. They will seek to guide you as mentors rather than telling you what you can and

I hear that Stass Paraskos has been nominated for an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Bolton in recognition for
his outstanding contribution to the field of art.
The award of a Higher Doctorate is the highest academic distinction available within any UK university
It appears the distinction of the Doctor of the University (D.Univ.) will be conferred when he is admitted to the Degree
at a Congregation of the University planned for either Thursday June 26 or Friday June 27.
