Artie, conscious of a sense of being trapped inside himself, funked, nevertheless believes he has something special to give. Exiled from his home, he hits the road and embarks on his own personal odyssey round Europe when, by chance, he comes across a bag full of paints and brushes and discovers he has a natural skill. Those who mock him have to eat their words when he is hailed as the Cypriot Picasso; and when he plays a major role in resolving the war between Greece and Turkey using nothing more than his incredible talent, the Papayiannis legend is born. 



The Funked-Up Artist is a fast-paced, romantic thriller which encourages the reader to consider the nature of identity and what it takes to survive in a world intent on self-destruction.
