GHOSTS of FAMAGUSTA 70x 100cm 11/2014 ©
This painting represents the “past and present” of a beautiful city abandoned 40 years ago and is hostage to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. During its heyday Varosha/Famagusta was not only one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world but also a favourite destination of celebrities, kings and queens and the rich and famous. Today, deserted and in ruins it continues to crumble under the wrath of time with no one coming to its rescue. Andreas C Chrysafis

Τα φαντάσματα της Αμμοχώστου 70x 100cm 10/2014 ©
Το έργο συμβολίζει το «Παρελθόν και το Μέλλον» μιας πανέμορφης πόλης που εγκαταλείφθηκε πριν απο σαράντα χρόνια, και που σήμερα είναι, ακόμα, όμηρος της εισβολής των Τούρκων. Στα καλλίτερα της χρόνια, ήταν ένας κορυφαίος προορισμός για τουρίστες, βασιλιάδες, βασίλισσες, όπως και άλλους αστέρες, γνωστούς και άγνωστους εκατομυριούχους. Σήμερα είναι μια έρημη πόλη που φθίνει κάτω απο το αμείλικτο βάρος του χρόνου, χωρίς κανείς να μπορεί να την σώσει. Σήμερα, συνεχίζει την μακροχρόνια πορεία φθοράς, στο έλεος των καιρών, και χωρίς καμμιά βοήθεια.
Andreas C Chrysafis was born in the village of Ayios Ambrosios, Kerynia, Cyprus. He studied and lived in the UK and Canada for most of his life where he practiced his profession as an architectural designer. He is a prolific writer of books, press articles including the Vanishing Cyprus Series distributed worldwide. Today, he lives between London and Cyprus devoting most of his time writing and painting works of art.

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

Andartes: ISBN 1904578012

Set in the mid 1950s, Andartes (Guerrillas) is an absorbing glimpse into the fiercely fought EOKA struggle for the independence of Cyprus from British colonial rule: the drama all the more poignant given its basis in historical fact. It is a vividly written, brutal, emotional, with a most touching story. Anyone reading this book cannot easily forget it. This absorbing read follows Alexis, whose pride and ideals lead him on a journey that results in his paying the ultimate price.

 

Porphyra in Purple: ISBN 1904578020

A freak accident and the discovery of a Codex, takes our young protagonists Nikolas and Christina on a subterranean and intergalactic adventure. They are thrown into a world of bizarre encounters with ethereal entities, parallel dimensions, bellowing chasms, albino fish and a strange black pyramid. Assisted by angelic life forms they reach the heavens where souls are first born. There, they witness the infinite Porphyra at the Gates of Egress alongside the shores of the Forgetful River. Things however, are not what they seem to be, and their journey home takes a strange twist. Porphyra is a wonderful novel full of surprises that generate fundamental questions which have plagued the human mind forever it seems; a most stimulating novel!

 

Who Shall Govern CyprusBrussels/ Nicosia? ISBN 1904578004

This is an in-depth analysis of the political, social and economic consequences of Cyprus’ relationship with the European Union. It reveals facts, which for years have been kept secret and in the dark. However, few of us are aware of the full implications of joining a centralized, all powerful organization, for it extends beyond the simple benefits of a common market. It is a book for serious reading and debate.
