Book Description

1 Sep 2009
A collection of essays to celebrate the seventy-fifth birthday of the artist Stass Paraskos. Born into a peasant family in Cyprus in 1933, Paraskos went to England to work as a waiter in a Greek restaurant. There he met a group of artists from Leeds College of Art who persuaded him to join their college. Paraskos never looked back, going on to be a celebrated artist and educator. He became Head of Painting at the University for Creative Arts, and founder of the Cyprus College of Art, the first art college in his homeland of Cyprus. This book places Paraskos in context and deals with major events in his life, including the notorious trial in Leeds, in 1966, when he was prosecuted for obscenity following an exhibition of his paintings.
