The beautiful and enduring island of Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean. Due to its location and unspoiled scenery it is seen by many as a major holiday destination in the region. Due to a long and arduous history of conquering and war it is famously divided into two sides. One side of the island is Greek and the other side is Turkish. However, the Republic Of Cyprus has sovereignty over the entire island including its territorial waters and economy.
Oil painting Mediterranean Blue Door by Theo Michael
Theo Michael was born on the Greek side of Cyprus and stayed there until the age of 5 until his father immigrated to London with the family in the early 1960’s. When Theo moved back to Cyprus in 2005 it was only fitting that his artistic passion for painting would grow to encompass his native country, its idiosyncrasies, and landmarks.

Over the years since, Theo’s body of work has served as a love letter to his native country, its culture, and its conviviality, as well as its historical monuments.
