Engraving Exhibition: “The Cyprus of Hampis”

A major retrospective exhibition titled “The Cyprus of Hampis” is being held by the Cultural Foundation of Troodos, showcasing the works of renowned Cypriot engraver Hampis Tsangaris. The exhibit features 40, carefully chosen by Hampis himself, pieces spanning six decades of his career, from 1976 to 2022. Inspired by the island’s rich history, his engravings depict the Cypriot tragedy, the works of local poets, myths and folklore, and the everyday lives, traditions, and customs of Cypriot people. Through Hampis’ unique artistry and technique, visitors can expect to see landscapes, portraits, nature scenes, architecture, and cultural practices come to life.

Hampis’ works reveal his enormous contribution to the promotion and protection of the cultural heritage of Cyprus. This dedication was further acknowledged in 2023 when he received the European Heritage Award / Europa Nostra Award in the “Heritage Champions” category.
