Tea Hadjikyriacou was born and raised in Famagusta. She has had a passion for painting from a very young age, however, due to the Turkish invasion she was unable to follow her dream and study Fine Art at University. Her paintings are mostly figurative and derive inspiration from everyday life, while some of her recent works depict landscapes.
Apart from painting, Hadjikyriacou discovered an interest in ceramic art. As she explains, working with clay makes her feel as if her mind sails away to a carefree state of creativity- just like that of a child. Many of her small ceramic sculptures look like they stepped out of a fairy-tale, whereas others portray figures and elements that are deeply embedded in Cypriot tradition.
Hadjikyriacou has participated in a number of exhibitions in Cyprus, and was featured in the books “Cypriot artists in the third millennium”, 2002, and “The Famagusta of artistic creation”, 2008.
