Theofilos (Chatzimichail) or Kefalas . A self-taught folk painter with inspiration and sensitivity that went far beyond the conventionalism of folk art. Born in Mitilini (1870-1934), he spent most of his life there and in the villages of Mt. Pilio, painting the walls of private dwellings and shops and, more rarely, the surfaces of portable objects. He portrayed historical subjects and genre scenes in a unique combination of iconographic symbols.
