MEETING A LOCAL ARTIST… MATHIEU DEVAVRY!
Humanitarian, multi talented artist inspired by everyday social challenges is this month’s edition dedicated to Mathieu Devavry.
Mathieu’s art has no boundaries. Working mostly as a street artist, he has worked with homeless people, children with autism, refugees and more. His art embraces everyone, while his source of inspiration is mostly driven by contemporary social issues such as recycling, wars, refugees and overall how humanity has been detached from society.
In 2017, together with the French school in Nicosia, he worked on a book with 11 year-old children and 2 refugees in order to address the issue of ‘Exile.’
In the past years, he has been working on different mural projects. While his art involves abstract/expressionistic style, he also likes to collect what he calls ‘garbage’ by the sea, involving pieces of driftwood and any natural waste which then he turns them into sculptures and installations.
Currently together with “Inner Space” an art group, he is involved in a European project including workshops with children and people who lost their sight addressing the themes on peace, justice and corruption. The project is in collaboration with the Municipality of Strovolos and the NGO called CARDET.

INNER SPACE – A DIFFERENT WAY
The artistic group “Inner Space” was created in 2019 to discover different ways of communication through the contribution of creation – art.
The group is aiming at continuous artistic activities – social interaction, hoping to spark new paths for the human kind.
Linking street art and education, the team deals with murals/graffiti murals, creating educational projects based on the combination of arts and the correlation of knowledge and experience. Through the creation of murals, artists express central social issues, always having a direct interaction with the world.
Through workshops, Inner Space promotes the idea of an alternative way of learning, emphasizing collaboration, interaction, experimentation and discussion.
So far, Inner Space has collaborated with the Municipality of Nicosia, the Community Council of Lythrodonta, the French Cypriot School, the French Institute, Pallouriotissa High School, Faneromeni School and many other entities.
