Michael Michaeledes / Μιχάλης Μιχαηλίδης

This volume is dedicated to the work of Michael Michaeledes, a singular artist of the Cypriot diaspora. Michael Michaeledes was born in Nicosia in 1923. He studied architecture and fine art in Italy and England. He has lived in London permanently since 1955, working as an architect and artist. His early paintings are figurative and relate to the ethnographic world of Cyprus. The figurative element is gradually abandoned through abstractive processes and gives way to juxtapositions of colour and line, which, from 1964 onwards, lead him to his relief geometric and rhythmic structures. His work belongs amongst the most advanced versions of the post-war view on artistic creation.
