The gallery is now at 84 Arsinoes Street, Old Nicosia, which is very close to Debenhams.
Michlis was born in Achna, in the district of Famagusta in 1947. At the age of 20 he moved to Famagusta, where

Since 1974, he has lived and worked in Limassol, starting the Art Workhop in 1980, along with Xenia Panteli

This marked the start of the artist’s involvement with material and sculpture.
Michlis has taken part in more than 30 exhibitions on Cyprus, and in 1987 he exhibited in London along with
Toulla Mala and Demetris Michlis.
His most recent wok took him back to his home village to erect his ‘Monument to the Refugees’,
a commission from Paralimni Municipality to remember 1974 and to celebrate the talent born there.
An exciting exhibition, with lively sculptures and sensitive paintings.

Open College of the Arts
BRITAIN’S Open College of the Arts is launching a new photography course for beginners in Paphos this
The course is taught in English and is aimed at adults who want to learn how to take better photographs without
overdosing on a lot of technical jargon
Photography for beginners has been running successfully in Britain for over 20 years, but this is the first
time the OCA has offered it in Cyprus. According to George Apostoli, the Development Manager of the OCA, ‘you don’t
need a fancy camera, you don’t need a dark room and you don’t need to be a genius. All you need is a bit of enthusiasm
and a willingness to try something new’.
Most people taking the course do so for the fun and to meet new people, but it also carries credit points
that can be used to help get a degree from the Open University or any British university.
