With Great Enthusiasm, May We Celebrate Everything Uniquely Wonderful About Each And Every Nation, your country, birth, heritage and ancestry!
Multiculture and Multiculturalism – There is no pure race on planet Earth
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!
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.

Here is an assortment of ‘people culture’ Abstract and Expressionism Luxury Paintings by MHAngelis Painter
🌎🌍🌏 “Dear Reader,Are You Familiar With Your Ancestry ?” 🎨🖌
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!

Throughout my life’s Luxury Art Paintings, I have often painted the sun and sunshine!
Spreading Hope Through My Suns And Sunshine!!!
The shapes of my suns’ depictions were first pointed out to me by a visiting gentleman at one of my Art exhibitions of Luxury Paintings.
A hobby painter, he radiated with delight when he spoke about the shape of my ‘suns’
He said, “I thought you might like to know that I have picked up on your suns!” I wasn’t sure what he was referring to and looked at him slightly puzzled…
He said “All of your work here is great! I want to point out to you that I noticed, you have a distinct style with suns. You paint suns in a certain way that I have never seen before…. I will tell you, I am a guy that goes to art exhibitions and I have been to hundreds of them… I have never, never, seen painted suns like yours! I really like your suns!”
After I thanked him, he called out enthusiastically to his wife and daughter, introducing us whilst explaining to them what he had just informed me of – the painting style of my suns!
The ladies followed him as he showed them to the paintings with the suns. The trio thanked me and wished me “All the very best with your career and keep on with your art painting!“

Angels Are Love, Angels Are Light, Angels Are Universal Messengers… Here is a Celebration and realisation of the creative depictions, The Paintings of my Luxury Paintings of Angels ! ‘Angel’ from the Hellenic / Greek word Αγγελος Angelos / Aggelos meaning God’s Messenger. From the beginning of time and right up to present… Light – Halos – Wings of Birds ! Angels may be People Angels are God’s communicators… Between Heaven and us Beings on Earth!

Although my schooling started in Australia, my understanding of literacy commenced when learning American/ US English at night school in Europe and then British UK English when re settling into my Australian – British UK schooling again.
It was in Australia when I realised (realized) that Grey is Gray as well!
Mix Black with White and we have Grey/ Gray!
I Like The Colour Grey… Why Do People Find It Confusing?
Personally, I do not find Grey confusing
Grey or Gray is a versatile ‘include me’ anywhere colour/ Color in Paintings – decor or even attire!
Grey, may be a prominent Stand Out colour
Grey, may be a Blend In – Shade In – Fade In with the rest Colour
What a lovely colour it is!?
Grey, is an interesting mix of colour, so much so, that when I paint, artwork or look at Gray, it is a ‘malleable’ colour
My Luxury Paintings often feature the colour – color – – Grey – Gray
At one of my Art Exhibitions of Paintings, an Art Viewer/ Admirer turned to me with; ‘You make Grey look Beautiful’. Humbled by the delightful remark and glad that someone likes my usage of Grey, I had that ‘Yea!’ moment
We all Like and Love a Fantastic Outcome! It makes us Feel – Happy! Hence one of my mottos “Happy Art!”
Before any outcome though,
There is Preparation The ‘Feel’ and Go – To – The – Journey – of – The Painting!
Allow me to explain…
Painting is not a sporting race, sometimes though, it is a race against The Paints’ drying time!
Speaking, or writing of time… Over time, I have developed my own Rhythm into my unique Artistic style MHAngelis Painter – Marisa Angelis – Artist. This is how it is, this is who I am, a Professional Painter Artist
‘Greedy’ for Paint, To Paint, To Create Colour – Lots and Lots of Colour or Color (depending on the spelling you relate to)
‘Relate’ Now that I am here and you have come this far…
This lovely piece of joy took me back to primary school when I built a kite using a green garbage bag, cane sticks, flour, water and added my transfer with silver spray paint ‘The Rolling Stones’, together with the band’s mouth and tongue logo! I wonder what Mick would say?
My teacher was Australian of Italian heritage and he showed the class ‘how to’ and go ahead…
As we all discovered on that very windy day at the school oval, my kite, was the only kite that was complete and functional.
As I held my Kite and ran, it picked up wind and up, up and up it went!
“Whoa!!!” My fellow class mates yelled!
“You did it!” “Well done!”
Then all of a sudden a huge dark cloud and downpour ‘dampened’ our afternoon.
Five minutes to home time. I rushed off with the kite partially tucked under my arm, gently tying it on top of my bag carrier and rode home on my bicycle – happy with myself for completing and succeeding my creative task!
Depicted in my Luxury Painting, travelling, Light of Fire – illuminating with explosive speed through the cosmos/ universe, the bright yellow ball of fire light trails – ripping through the atmosphere!
What a great honour and opportunity that my life’s career presented !
At my Artworks Exhibitions, I always positioned a table by my carefully – precision display of Luxury Paintings, Mosaics, Poems, Art Models and Handmade / Designed Jewelry / Jewellery – Luxury Necklaces
There I was, as the public entered, ready to welcome, meet and greet as many curious and enthused people that arrived
“Welcome to my Art Exhibition, I am Marisa Angelis the Artist, would you like a flier? If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask”
When their viewing was almost over, people would make their way towards me and I would ask, if they would like to sign my Visitors book or stop myself from asking, as I noticed most people would automatically pick up the attached pen and happily sign my visitors book.
Of course I felt delighted that visitors signed, dated and commented my book!
In this blog, I have selected to share some of the comments and feedback that I received from people / Critics, as well as several of my Luxury Paintings that were also presented at real/ non virtual exhibiting!

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