. My art expresses the journey of my life in the different periods, so the color and nature of the paintings expresses the feelings and emotions in the different periods. Recently I was drawn to a fascinating journey of painting that combines abstract and realism in one format where the visualizations, the line and the stain of color create and describe a new world, another in the spirit of the times, in the shadow of the corona virus, a world filled with images, happenings, feelings of fear, optimism and uncertainty.

Your belly bottom songs are like wings of storm picking up from the rivers between mountains and rise up unto mountain peaks until beyond those mystic-mysterious mountains. You tell stories of home with that linguistically prowess and unrestrained verbal bravado. Your songs are strings of emotion inscribed unto the veins of our hearts with that simplicity that carry the smoothening depth, depth that does not break but changes the way our hearts beat and mental jive rhythms of our thoughts. You leave our feelings skidding like a rocked seat, you make our minds grope to see the universe- outside of mental caves. And our hearts continue to yell for more and more verses. Dear artist, your collective message is a multi-genre life poster written from a heart-beat that learnt about multi-tasking and sang unto podiums of diversity from its tender-times till this day. Through your song lyrics- I have learnt to master the art of suspense, love, hope, belief and depth – may be do we call that meditation or something more than that, for me everything of your verse is a prayer line. It carries sweet beads of tears, the sense of belonging, the mark of birthright, the beauty and the mystery of nature and life, the hope of light and the touch of spiritual realms- Some readers might see your writings as simple as they are but it’s a mammoth gig to dig into them inside out. My creative taste buds are rising up. Its great meeting you our prolific artist, accomplished educationist and great Israelis griot Yehudit Malik-Shiran

Dear writer/poet Soulla Orfanidou, your deeply thought but stubbed verses split the readers brains. The short/ pint-sized set of poems carry a message, a wonder voice dedicated to the land of her people, to the beauty of her earth, to the daily struggles, dreams of the poet and hopes of her people. This real poetry inscribes the signatures of writer’s culture/traditions unto our mental cave walls. We all are in the know that writers/poets are griots of their countries and singers of their morality. They are both the mirrors and prophets of their birth-land. The suspense-filled poetry pays homage to seas/shores/ nature and time. Pan-Writers Caravan continues to embrace voices from Africa and abroad. This is a wonderful exhibition of Cyprus born /raised poet Soulla Orfanidou and we are publishing her instalment in both English and her home land language (Cyprus)-(mbizochirasha)
