Multiculture and Multiculturalism – There is no pure race on planet Earth

Since ancient times, we humans are so mixed, so multiracial, so Pandemos Diaspora !

We have descended from the descended, that it has become impossible to think of ourselves of being from one or a few ‘other‘ countries!

Most of us descend from several nations and a few or more continents!

Advertisements

Born in…  I’m from with… Multiracial ancestry, mainly from…

Ah…!  That’s why 

Oh no, not really…!

I strongly resemble …

We take from seven generations on either side of our biological parents, however, if we have step parents – especially from age 0-3, it is possible that we tend to subconsciously mimic stepparents’ body language /expression.

Passionate People From All Walks Of Life Spreading Cultural Awareness

Advertisements

In 2009 I established a Facebook group and later page ‘THE ART OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY BY MARISA ANGELIS’, To unite people from all walks of life, to contribute their passions, to share, network and express – for ‘Passionate People From All Walks Of Life Spreading Cultural Awareness’

Tell us about your; Life Career Hobbies An experience that left an impact Favourite film, talents, skills, causes –  Anything that is spreading cultural goodness and awareness to your fellow human kind is most welcome – let us respect each other and have fun!  Education is fun!”

“THE ART OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY BY MARISA ANGELIS was created and designed to Educate”

At the reaching point of over one thousand members, Facebook changed the way members viewed each other in group pages, so after almost five years, I ended the page because the type of interaction that was once happening slowly seized.

The group page was an interesting experience and blend of people; with marketers, supporters, ‘fun-sters’, givers, takers and some fakers!

Members included people from Europe, Asia, Africa, Arab countries, USA, Australia and everywhere else in the world!

Vibrant Adelaide is the capital, with its many parks and gardens, restored heritage buildings and the current Wow! Of new developments, sky scraping buildings and hotels of diverse architecture.

Beautiful throughout any season, Adelaide’s Mediterranean climate, boasts a generous wine industry at Clare Valley, Barossa Valley and Southern Coastal areas, McLaren Vale.

Adelaide was once known as the City of Churches. Now, it is world famous for innovation and technology, space research, sports, arts and cultural events.

We have really cool and friendly people here too, hence Adelaide is often described by the rest of Australia as a big country town!



Throughout urban planning history, Adelaide is described as one of the best planned cities in the world.

Advertisements

The city’s and state’s beauty comes from both its lovely outback and sea!


Through the centre of The City of Adelaide, flows the beautiful quaint River Torrens. The river lies on a narrow coastal plain. To the west is Gulf of St Vincent and to the east, the Mount Lofty Rangers.


Clean pristine beaches and the awe wonderful Kangaroo Island, a fantastic attraction, a must for any visitor.


South Australia features, hills, valleys, vineyards, mountains and gorges

A favourite to most, especially stargazers, campers, hikers and nature lovers is outback Flinders Ranges, north of Adelaide!

It Remains Forever Embedded Into My Creative Being…

₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪ ARCHITECTURE ₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪ ₪ ₪ ₪ ₪

It all began when my family took me for a trip to The Hellenic Republic/ Greece.

My curiosity and intrigue developed when I sat on my father’s shoulders for the ultimate tour, as we all walked through the ruins of ancient Athens, Olympia, Ireon/ Heraion and everywhere else! 

‘Archi’ – is from the Hellenic/ Greek word meaning ‘Beginning’

‘Tekton /Tecture’ – from the Hellenic/ Greek word ‘Techne’ – Skill – Artisan/ Craftsman – Craftsperson!

Architecture is ‘The Beginning of the Skill’!

So, Architecture or being an Architect is beyond ‘building’ as in ‘construction’ as in mud huts, bricks, timber, concrete etc.

We are The Architects of our Architecture… 

We Plan,  Design,  Construct, Evolve… Travel – Reside – Travel

Structure – Life or as in a Building, or as in my Profession, a Painting!

Advertisements

I enjoy Architecture so much, that in most of my Luxury Paintings, it is likely that there will be some form of Architecture incorporated into my artwork.

Sometimes, the Architecture is the whole process, not just the visual or visual outcome – product/ product of Creation…

Touring the most magnificent Architectural sites of early ‘civilisation’, was indeed visually confronting and an amazing experience to say the least!

Statues of people, lions, animals, Corinthian pillars, antiquities, part ancestry, part mystery and all a priceless education.

Flashes of Architecture, Art, Sculpture, Character Houses with Expressions.

Blue and white – ocean, sky, green shrubs, trees, rubble and golden sunshine beaming into my eyes, as I looked on at the shadowy silhouettes from my surroundings.

Yes, it was exciting and a wonderful memory! 

I was introduced to ancient Hellenic culture; inventions; arts, architecture – The Parthenon at the Acropolis, science, mathematics – Pythagoras, philosophy, medicine, diversity, Hellenic mythology, history, cuisine, olive oil, goats, donkeys, horses, the aroma of Ouzo, travelling market garden sellers, three wheeler trucks and that the ocean in this part of the world, was not inhabited with sharks!

Advertisements

Since that time, I have travelled to diverse destinations, mystical lands of various cultures and have discovered, learnt, worked, observed and enjoyed Architecture right up to present.

I see how the rest of the world has influenced Australia my country of birth and in particular South Australia; grand old houses that once belonged to British lords, Mediterranean naval villa’s, Stationmaster cottages, Dutch dwellings, Corinthian pillars, Meanders, Greek and Chinese key motifs, modern Iranian architecture, Spanish villas and so on…

As my Artwork of luxury paintings are expressively created – evolving; painting, designing,  graphic digital images, photography and jewellery/ jewelry design all naturally include a significant influence of Architecture.

Advertisements

‘Structure?’ Okay! Lets not complicate it! Simply, Yes of course! Look deeper and deeper into the abstract and expressionism!

Architecture has inspired my life, thoughts, feelings and creativity in every possible way.

My Luxury Paintings /Artworks at Luxury Paintings by MHAngelis – Marisa Angelis -Are influenced by Architecture;

For example:  What is ? ₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪

Is it a ‘Grecian Key’ or a ‘Greek Fret’ ?

Is it an Ancient Hellenic Design used in Architecture and Art?

Is it a Greek Motif used time and time again everywhere around and throughout the world and in important buildings of governance – notoriety – nobility or Art Deco era Architecture?

This Design is the ‘Meandros’ or commonly known in English as ‘Meander’ 

Meandros is named after the twisting and turning path of the Maeander River in Asia Minor/ Anatolia, Anatole – Hellenic Greek – part of my ancestry – now Turkey. The Meandros is featured prominently in Hellenic Architecture because it belongs to the Hellenic/ Greek Empire.

You may notice that I incorporate this architectural design into my website. You may also notice that I sometimes incorporate this architectural design or architecture into my artwork -> Luxury Art Paintings, -> Luxury Necklaces and other Art Pieces – It Remains Forever Embedded Into My Creative Being – Here is an example;

You Laid The Foundations For My Artistic Journey Ahead… We Just Didn’t Know It At That Time. I Suppose Destiny And Love Work Like That

My beautiful late Pappou/ Grandfather, was a Greek islander of Anatolian descent. His professions included; Saddler, Farmer, Market Gardener, Soldier and Army Cook, Soap Maker and Distributor during the great depression and a Butcher’s Apprentice. Pappou was a champion Backgammon player and above all a Kind Gentleman as remember by many and those who loved and knew him.

After my Grandparents married they helped raise and support my grandmothers’ three younger siblings and her young widowed mother who outlived my Grandfather. Later in life, my Great Grandmother informed me that my Grandfather was an angel.

Whilst in the army, a fellow Greek ship accidentally blew up my Grandfather and his platoon, mistaking them for the enemy. My Grandfather and a fellow soldier the only two survivors had to bag body parts.

My late Grandparents’ love for each other, was so strong that before the news broke out about the blast, my late Grandmother was on her knees, newly wedded and praying that her husband would be safe.

Amongst his pets Pappou had Tzak, the dog, many cats, horses, donkeys and goats.

Towards the end of the war, Pappou, learnt to converse in Italian with a small group of Italian soldiers, swapping goods for goods, so that he could carry out his soap making.

Immigrating to Australia my Grandparents became Australian.  Proud to be Hellenes/ Greek, excited and anxious to commence their new life in Australia. They had a cat which was very playful, a lot of fun and always performing tricks. Pappou worked extremely hard on the South Australian railways and later in a factory, was self sufficient, cooked and carried out many chores, kept a huge garden of vegetables, herbs and fruit trees; including one of my favourites, wild Cherry trees!

When Pappou planted a wild cherry tree in our backyard and it started growing…  I would go to the tiny non fully grown cherries, pick them…. Hold the miniature cherries in my hand and squeeze them, as I watched the liquid cherry reddish/ purplish colour, rush and run all over my hand and so my excitement, my inspiration for liquid colour – Paint began at an early age!  I noticed how the liquid stained my hand and started rolling it around on my skin – ‘Wow’ !

Above: Luxury Painting ‘ Liberty ‘ by MHAngelis – © MarisaAngelis-Artist.com

“Marisa, leave the cherries to grow so we can eat them…”  But little did dad know, what I had discovered! 

When I was a toddler Pappou would sit me on his knee and I would play with his orange beaded komboloi/ Komboloyee, Greek ‘happy’ pass time beads.  Many years later, I found one of the orange komboloi beads tossed in my late Grandparents garage and knew that Pappou was ‘talking’ to me.  One bright orange bead –

“Yiassou (Hello) Pappou!”

Above: I am wearing the Orange Bead from Pappou’s Komboloi (MarisaAngelis-Artist.com)

Pappou’s komboloi of beads, was my creative embedding for designing and creating beaded Luxury Necklaces / Jewellery – Jewelry!

Pappou would have Loved this Necklace ‘Harmony’ perhaps for Yiayia! In his favourite colours – Orange and Carnelian, Handmade, Designed and Created by Marisa Angelis

Whenever my father tried to renovate; repair windows with putty, little fingers followed – I was a crafter from way back!

Sorry dad!  You had to re apply everything twice – maybe even three times!  

I’d follow and watch dad making, fixing, building, growing, nurturing everything!

I was fascinated with creativity!

Dad and Pappou, You Laid The Foundations For My Artistic Journey Ahead… We Just Didn’t Know It At That Time. I Suppose Destiny And Love Work Like That

Pappou was the first of all grandparents to see me and hold me when I was born.  

Three nights before a major life changing event, I dreamt of late Pappou!

In life, I remember his lovely presence and his love for me.

I believe that my Pappou Angelis always watches over me.  I have always felt his love and spiritual presence. 

There are always signs; 

Pappou is the Magpie that sings to me and the Monarch butterfly that flutters before me!
