13179051_1091948427542584_5907603004612964482_nIn August of 1974, artist from Paphos, Andy Adamos, abandons his art studio in Famagusta, with all the body of his art works in it. Many years later, a Turkish Cypriot architect and artist Baki Boğaç  discovered Andy Adamos’ studio, and decided to safe keep the artworks, and to return them to their rightful owner when he would have the chance to.

In 1993, three years after Andy Adamos passed away, Baki Boğaç succeeds in contacting Adamos’ family, and delivers the salvaged body of work, their existence that was unknown for two decades.

In 5th of May 2017, and for a whole month, at the Old Powerhouse in Pafos, 41 years after, the ‘lost’ works of Adamos will be presented for the first time to the public, within the context of the Risky Travels Exhibition. The exhibition will also contain a selection of sculptures from Baki Boğaç,  so that the two artists, their paths that were so paradoxically crossed, can finally unite through their work and their art.

The exhibition is organised by Sergis Adamos 

with the coordination of Adamos and Boğaç families.

 

Two artists could not met in person… Yet their art works will unite together in Paphos 2017
