Young Cypriot Painter’s debut in New York

The Consul General of the Republic of Cyprus in New York, Hon. Andreas Panayiotou, the Spouse of the Ambassador, Permanent Representative of Cyprus to the United Nations, Mrs. Calliopi Mavroyiannis, and the Art Curator Panos Dimitropoulos hosted a Painting Exhibition by Constantinos Zannetos at the New York’s Cyprus House, introducing the young artist to the US public. Archbishop Demetrios of America was among the dignitaries who along with another 200 guests filled the hall to capacity, making the event an astounding success.

Constantinos Zannetos (k.zannetos@gmail.com) was born and raised in Nicosia, Cyprus, in 1981. He graduated with honors in 2007 from the studio of Zacharias Arvanidis at the Athens School of Fine Arts. He made his debut with a personal exhibition in Cyprus in 2006 and a few months ago at the Mala Galleria in Poland. Constantinos is a young, true and talented Cypriot Artist with a promising career. “By looking his paintings, we enter in a world of colors, dreams and feelings. He is making another step here in New York today,” Calliopi Mavroyannis observed during her introduction of the artist. “Zannetos’ technique draws inspiration from the Impressionists, the ancient Greek art, Byzantine icons and the modern movements. In his paintings, allegoric characters in theatrical scenes create a unique atmosphere that transcends time and place.”
