Christos Cassianos was born in Nicosia in September 1948. He had his primary and secondary education in Cyprus and subsequently studied Food Technology in the UK where he lived up to his return to Cyprus in 2001.
He had a long and varied career in the food and drink industry in the UK in a technical capacity and later became a freelance technical author with a book on food safety, which has been published in four languages, to his credit.
He painted watercolours for a number of years in the UK and after his return to Cyprus he decided to try a different medium. He studied the art of mosaic with Thea Heinig-Lazarou in Limassol and has been working in this form of art since early 2004 always looking for new ideas and new challenges.
