18 Livaniou Strovolos, Nicosia
The Bellapais Studio & Gallery was established by painters Costas Joachim and Susan Kerr Joachim in Bellapais, Cyprus. They are both graduates from the Bath Academy of Art in UK and inaugurated the studio in 1972. It continued to function until July 1974, when due to the sensitive political situation in the island forced the artists to leave.
In 1977 the Studio and Gallery was re-established in Nicosia, where the artists currently work and live. It hosts a large collection of their paintings from early to recent items. Visitors are welcome to explore the space during week days, having the unique opportunity to witness and purchase a display of various pieces from the artists. It is also possible to take a look at the general collection online and access the website for the online exhibitions of their most recent work.
