Columbia Beach Resort Showcases Inspired Art Collection by Nicholas Ladommatos
[12th September 2023, Limassol, Pissouri Bay]
Transforming into a boutique gallery, Columbia Beach Resort proudly showcased the inspired artwork of local, famed artist, Nicholas Ladommatos, alongside a chic cocktail reception.
Columbia Beach Resort is honoured to have been able to adorn its walls with the esteemed and elegant artwork of local artist, Nicholas Ladommatos, in a landmark and exclusive showcase that was unveiled on the eve of Friday, September 8, 2023.
Occupying the space outside of the five-star resort’s regal Oval Ballroom, in the Oval Gallery, Mr. Ladommatos’ collection featured fine art prints on canvas, built upon the foundational theme of ‘By the Sea’.
Guests gathered to behold the inspiration of a homegrown artist, who has been channelling his fascination with the sea into his artwork since 2016, against the backdrop of a chic cocktail reception, complete with music, gourmet canapés, and delectable wine options.
Of his inspiration, Mr. Ladommatos pointed to the sea’s duality, its calmness and wildness, how soft and soothing the waves can be, versus the aural onslaught of stormy waters. “This is why I chose to capture the sea on canvas,” Mr. Ladommatos explained, “The sea symbolises progress and dynamism”.
Elaborating on his artistic choices, Mr. Ladommatos detailed: “Most of the artwork featured in the collection falls within the realm of realism, but some pieces are in abstract form, portraying the energy of the waves, rising and falling.”
Using resin on canvas, pigments, acrylics and vitrail, Mr. Ladommatos described the multi-layering process involved in bringing some pieces to life: “There is no use of a brush, just torching, and moving the canvas when the resin is still liquid”.
Of the event, Anthea Vikis, Marketing Manager of Columbia Beach Resort, shared: “We are very proud to have been able to host Mr. Ladommatos’ exquisite artwork. A local artist, Mr. Ladommatos embodies the very culture of Columbia, which is focused on
celebrating and championing homegrown talent.”
Ms. Vikis continued: “Hosting such events also enables us to add a unique element of our guests’ stay, bringing them closer in touch with the essence of Cyprus.”
The exhibition will be open until October 31st 2023.
Overlooking the secluded, Blue Flag-honoured Pissouri Bay on the southern coast of Cyprus, Columbia Beach Resort is a five-star resort offering 169 luxurious suites.
