Savvas Theofanous was born in Limassol, Cyprus in 1990 and is a London based artist. He received his Integrated Master’s Degree in Painting and Printmaking from Athens School of Fine Arts (ASFA) in 2016.
In 2019 he spent 4 months in Japan as part of Kyoto City’s University of Arts Exchange Programme, in conjunction with the Royal College of Art. Inspired by his research into natural motifs, in Kyoto he drew parallels between Ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement) and his work with paper. With both media he employs ideas of layering, concealment, uncovering, fading, revealing and visual deconstruction, in order to underline and expose the cultural, social and political.
His exhibitions include Double Vision at Cromwell Place 2021; The book is a container at Southwark Park Galleries 2021; Against the Grain at Southwark Park Galleries 2020; International student exhibition at Kyoto City University of Arts, Art Gallery @KCUA 2019; Group Showcase Print at Hockney Gallery 2019.
