THIS IS THE RESUME MENU.

The TWO|FOUR|TWO art group was formed on 21 August 1996 in Nicosia, Cyprus by Constantinos Kounnis and Costas Mantzalos; a two-person group working as an entity. It is an Art Group that lives and believes in Art as an evolutionary institution which changes in time and mutates with the passing of time, however, like democracy, remains a supreme power vested in the people and characterized by recognition of equality of opinions and voices.
