Rinos Stefani at Gloria’s
New book to be presented
GLORIA’s Gallery in Nicosia is organising, from October 9 to 25 of October, an exhibition of Rinos Stefani’s
paintings of the period 1998–2008 under the title Acrobats.
The exhibition will be opened by the Minister of Interior Neoklis Sylikiotis.
The artist will also present his new book titled, ‘Rinos Stefani-Acrobats’.

the continuous exploration and negotiation of the human condition: of erotic, existential and ecological anxieties and dead-ends,
but also of the (endless?) effort for a way out and of the (hopeless?) desire for (inter)personal fulfilment.

The paintings: some in oils, some in acrylic are of an exceptional high standard . Peace reigns. Or does it? Here and there

is Cyprus in its beauty and depth.
