If you take a wander around the streets of Paphos, both old and new, you will occasionally stumble upon some random art installations.The patchwork tree is one such example, but there are other exhibits too numerous to mention here. Today, we are going to have a look at a subset of these works, and examine some of the murals you will find. Most of them are situated in a small area to the west of Kennedy Square. However, there are a few others scattered around, so it pays to explore...
This can be found in a car park, between the courts and Stephanis. Take care if you track it down though, as it is in an active building site.
Now, does the tag indicate Bankruptcy, or Bankcrupt Cyprus?
The puddle spoils it a bit, but that won't be there now...
Lots of Cups
Most of the pieces shown here are in two carparks in the Old Town, near Kennedy Square. The rough location is highlighted on the map on page 3 of this blog.
This particular piece was by Mirion McConnon.You can learn more about her by visiting her website.
Old Meets New
If Cypriots had to pay to park their donkeys, I am sure there would be a right.
Next to the donkey, we have these pieces. I have no idea what is going on in the left hand design. The right hand design appears to show a businessman using a hangman's noose as a tie. If you have ever worked in an office you can have some empathy for that notion!
