ARTIST CHRIS ACHILLEOS
I've always been moved by the art of painter Chris Achilleos. He is originally from the island nation of Cyprus, and has British citizenship.
His work covers the span of science fiction to fantasy, and his specialty has been said to be the depiction of beautiful women.
His work is available in books, book covers, and prints.
I am as moved now as I was from the first sighting, and offer the next few images as a way of convincing others of his magnificence.
