Phil Bird

Phil Bird is a British painter permanently based in Cyprus and is a full-time tutor at CyCA.
While in Britain much of his work explored the imagery of pre-Chistian Britain harking back to pre-Roman times. He lived not far from the Avebury Ring and the Vale of the White Horse.

Now working in Cyprus his work looks at some of the imagery of the Eastern Mediterranean and embraces Hellenic, Egyptian and other ancient Middle-Eastern cultures.

He has made not only paintings but small sculptures of the figures that feature in his work.
Phil is also a folk musician whose compositions are also evocative of these (almost) lost cultures.
