Here is a short film about the Principle of the Cyprus College of Art, Stass Paraskos. His son Michael has put together some interviews and home videos of Stass. It is a revealing collection of memories, at times very personal and touching. Stass tells his own story; how he came from humble beginnings as a shepherd in Cyprus and moved to England with only £5 in his pocket. Becoming an art student and then an art lecturer, he went on to mix with many influential people including Terry Frost and Herbert Read. He also tells you a little about when he was taken to court for obscenity. I could go on, but he tells it much better than I can. Watch this film, and learn more about an amazing man that inspired many people, myself included.
