From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Telemachos Kanthos (1910-1993) was born in Alona, a village in the highland Pitsillia area of Cyprus. He is regarded generally as a Father of modern Cypriot painting. His work is varied but his favorite subjects were the hills surrounding his village. Some of his most evocative work followed the Turkish military intervention in Cyprus in 1974, where he recorded some of the suffering of displaced persons and particularly those who had lost loved ones. He is the father of the Cypriot singer Eleni Kanthou.
