In 1999, I approached Radio Stations in Adelaide, South Australia and became a regular guest poet and share presenter with one of the most popular FM bandwidth Australian Greek radio stations that reaches listeners world wide.

For my introduction, I discussed my Art work, Luxury Paintings and how Cultural Diversity – Australia, Multiculturalism and the Environment are the core of my Creativity.

Back then no one knew the term Cultural Diversity or what it was/is.  

I am the person who brought forth and made ‘Cultural Diversity’ known through various media channels.  

The term; Cultural and Diversity was brought together in 1998 after a deeply personal experience shook my awareness of people and cultures and how they saw each other. 

One night, as I sat on a red sofa, I opened the dictionary and looked at both words, bringing them together; Cultural Diversity.

In 1999, the media journalists; newspapers, sporting clubs, industries were becoming aware of and ‘picked up’ on ‘Cultural Diversity’ !

I continued to recite my Poetry, hosting competitions and participating in extensive interviews, including Talk Back with listeners throughout Australia and the World which remains another highlight of my career.

My weekly radio segment brought a little happiness and excitement into the lives of many listeners with opportunities for the general public to win and grin, as I offered my up-cycled art pieces and painting ‘Idols’ as prizes!

My interviews were in English, Greeklish, Greek and I had a wonderful time ‘brushing up’ on my Greek!

This experience was educational; I crafted my language skills, it built confidence in me – The professional Artist and Poet and I was truly honoured that my poetry was being enjoyed by a great number of listeners!

From time to time people of all backgrounds and walks of life, would ask “Are you the Artist, on the radio station?” 

Whilst my regular weekly segment was happening, I was invited to another two Radio stations; On FM bandwidth, one was for Australian Ethnic broadcasting that broadcasted throughout Australia and the other on AM bandwidth International, reaching listeners all over the world!

A tremendous opportunity for me to discuss my Art Paintings and Poetry / Jewelry/ Jewellery / Art Models/ Mosaics and exhibitions as well as inviting everyone to view my Art in galleries, establishments, festivals and anywhere else that my Art was being exhibited.

At my time with the International radio station, I was offered my own Radio program. 

The phone wouldn’t stop ringing, interest and popularity was strong, Theodoris the presenter, handed me a microphone, “The mics yours! Please come back, people love what you are doing, people relate to you… Look, the phone hasn’t stopped ringing the whole time we have been on air!”

Not only was being on Radio fun and interesting… I was overwhelmed by the public’s genuine interest and liking of my artworks – my Luxury Paintings, my knowledge of diverse subjects and representing Cultural Diversity for The Goodness of Humanity!

Cultural Diversity does not only represent a place/ Country, ancestry… Cultural Diversity represents variety, broadmindedness and everything in Life!

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!


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!


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.


‘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;
