Our artists:
 
Nicoletta Papamichael
Nicoletta Papamichael was born in Larnaca in 1977. She studied Fine Arts at the Florence Academy of Fine Arts, where from she graduated with distinction in 2001.
 
In 2002 she entered in the Complutense University of Madrid, and followed a Masters course titled Theory and Practice of the Contemporary Art.
In 2006 she was accepted at a PhD programme of the same University under the general title “drawing and engraving, teaching and creativity”. She has successfully finished its first part with her thesis: “Self portrait: the Art to share Intimacy”.
Terms as Intimacy, Private and Personal as well as their role in the artistic creation, are questions that preoccupy her both in her artistic and theoretical research.
Nicoletta has presented three solo exhibitions in Cyprus and two solo presentations in Madrid and has presented her work in Florence, Madrid, Barcelona and Berlin, as well as in many group exhibitions in Cyprus.
 
Chloe Finn
Chloe Finn was born in Thessaloniki in 1989 to a Greek mother and an Australian father. She studied Product Design in Central St.Martins, London and has worked in a variety of arts and crafts. Her works are on-location illustrations, from real places she meets in her travels, cities she visits and houses and interiors that inspire her. Her passion for capturing landscapes led her to collaborate with various groups, environmental and cultural organizations, creating images, graphics and illustrating children's books.
She has been living and working in Cyprus for the last four years, dealing with artist groups, workshops and social projects.
 
 
Michalis Charalambous, born in 1987, is a Visual Artist.  Michalis’ practice includes ceramic, filmmaking and painting. He graduated from the Fine Arts School of Visual and Applied Arts of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2013. His Master dissertation (MA, Open University of Cyprus, 2019) focuses on the activity and influence of independent Artist-Run spaces in Cyprus. He has participated in national and international festivals and exhibitions like the 16th Venice Biennale of Architecture (Cyprus Pavilion, 2018), the 6th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art (2017, “Imagined Homes”),  the special screening program at 58th  Thessaloniki International film Festival,  the Athens Ethnographic Film Festival (2016) with the documentary “Anamones” and the PAFOS 2017 group exhibition “Weaving Europe”. Finally, he has been hosted in artist residencies in Lecce/ Puglia, IT (BJCEM, “LandXcape”) and in Barcelona, SP (Can Serrat).
Through his practice, Michalis Charalambous explores the boundaries between space, body, object and identity in our time using digital technology and traditional media. He examines the contradictory terms of analogue and digital, physical and virtual environment, material and intangible. His work aims to interpret a non-specific context defined by symbolism. It suggests different ways of touching a vessel to interpret the interaction between the meta-human, the object and the space. 
His artistic practice takes references from ancient vessels dating to different historical cultures which, blended with poetic narratives, sculptural practices and 3d modeling lead to new, hybrid forms. At the same time, Michalis makes use of the method of “still life photography” as a mean of alternative interpretation and approach concerning the context of an image. In this context, photography operates as a medium associated to cultural and political significances rather than an ordinary scientific tool.
