Soula Mantalvanos

One of the best things about being a fine artist is that you create work that has the ability to please people and make them smile, you can inspire them and provoke thoughts. It really is the ultimate finalť to an already enjoyable creative process.
 
I am a Melbourne born Cypriot living in the creative art hub of Collingwood. Iím never short of ideas and that has a lot to do with my social environment, my heritage and a brilliant Melbourne culture I throw myself in. My work always reflects my life's happiness.
 
When Theo and I recently renovated, I saw our kitchen splashback as such a blank canvas. I knew coloured glass was as far as the industry had progressed, but I still pitched my idea of having a drawing on the glass to the Splashback Company. They just happened to have discovered the technology to print images on glass and were looking for an artist who could produce something unique. I drew The Banquet of Cleopatra by Tiepolo (which hangs in the NGV) and it is now quite a feature in our home and an exquisite pleasure to live with, like most art.
 
I am grateful for my Greek heritage and believe it has influenced me incredibly. Greek culture as we all know it is rich, passionate, warm, and emotive. All these elements are evident in my work.
 
To date I have had four solo exhibitions and have been a finalist in a few prominent Australian art prizes with my portraits and still life works.
 
Despite my life hold up over the passed six years from a chronic pelvic pain injury after a fitball I was sitting on exploded letting me fall to a concrete floor, I am quite content with the progress of my art and especially indebted to its powerful life coping mechanisms. 
 
My career highlights include a commission from the Hellenic Republic restaurant for a fresco like icon of St. George on one of the interior walls, my website created to document and raise awareness for my chronic pelvic pain issue, in my own drawings and words which has, sadly attracted 27,000 readers in just over a year, and of course my first art prize win for a 'puppet' palette portrait of Ms Soula. Ms Soula is a self portrait fully functional marionette I commissioned Colleen Burke to create in order for me to be able to document my pelvic pain story through characterisation, a huge drive for all my art.
