Artist, Euripides "Rip" Kastaris has been commissioned by the Hellenic Cultural Foundation to design and produce "Kyklos-Circle of Glory." Born in Thesaloniki, Greece and son of a Greek Orthodox Priest, Kastaris came to the United States at a young age as part of his father's mission. A graduate of Washington University School of Fine Art in St. Louis, Missouri, he has developed many fine works of art that fuse themes and ideas from antiquity with contemporary forms. As a native born Hellene and an accomplished artist, Euripides Kastaris brings a special insight and authentic energy to the production of this historic monument.
