As an observer, Paskalis Anastasi depicts people and places of his surroundings and seeks to explore colour, movement and personality of the subjects.
He sees himself as a painter of the plein-air technique, attempting to capture that elusive moment when time appears to stand still. Embracing this concept wholeheartedly, it has become an important feature in his works. The spontaneity and vivacity of this painting technique and the devotion to the close observation of nature and people has been the focus of his art.
It is my beloved Island of Cyprus that holds the key to my passion for landscape, figurative and portrait painting.
