Cyprus-born artist Frixos Papantoniou studied Fine Arts at Kingston University and at the Institute of Education, University of London. Although he made London his home and workplace, he keeps very close contact with his home country where he shows regularly. Based in East London, Papantoniou has exhibited widely throughout the UK, Germany, US, Greece and Cyprus in solo and group shows. His work received awards at Sefton Open, Southport and at Fresh Art, Islington Business Centre London. In 2013 he was one of the three finalists in “Pride in the House” Lauderdale House, Hampstead and in 2016 an exhibition of his work was organised at Europe House, London by the Cyprus High Commission, under the auspices of the High Commissioner in the UK Euripides L. Evriviades. His work is included in a number of collections such as the London Arts Council, the Cultural Services of the ministry of Education, Cyprus, the American College of Greece and numerous private collections.
