Born in Georgia, Achilleas Michaelides aka Paparazzi is a painter, graffiti writer, muralist and street artist now based in Cyprus, hailed as one of the most recognised exponent of street art on the island, he started off in Limassol with his expression murals back in 2002 which really rocked the boat at the time, given that no one was really familiar with graffiti as an actual art form (but more, just slogans on the walls), with street art largely regarded as vandalism. Today he remains as prolific as he ever was and spending more time in his studio.
