MFA Thesis

This piece is titled "Until it is Made Right" and depicts me as a youth dressed as a "Tsolia" the traditional Greek Independence Fighters standing in front of a stylized parade float of Cyprus, my nation, illegally occupied by Turkish forces for 33 years now. I am a refugee and I will not stop until it is made right. This was the center piece of my MFA Thesis, which was titled "I am Worthy," in homage to Odysseus Elytis' Nobel Prize winning poem "Axion Esti."
