This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Kashalos was born in Assia in 1885.  He was self-taught.  He attended a few icon-painting classes at Elementary School given by the teacher and iconographer Kyriacos Pierides.  He worked as shoe-maker until the Second World War and then turned to mirror decoration and painting on glass.  He also made decorative clay and plaster objects and copies of ancient finds.  Around 1957 he took up painting and gradually devoted himself entirely to it.  In August 1974 he was seriously wounded by the Turkish Army which invaded his village and died later, on August 31, as a refugee in Larnaca.

He is considered as the father of contemporary Cypriot Naive art. His work can be found at the State Gallery of Contemporary Cypriot Art, the Cyprus Folk Art Museum, the Cultural Centre of Popular Bank and in private collections.
