"Kafeneid, Sykamina", Katy Brennan, 2017
Oil on canvas
42 x 36.5cm
Painting of an old Kafeneio, in a beautiful village Sykaminia, Lesvos. Café society in the most tranquil setting, yet south of the island sees the refugee crisis. The most beautiful island with so much to give. I always had the refugee crisis in the back of my mind whilst painting this scene. A story is to be told by all these characters in the painting.
