Malamellis: Painter of Lesvos

A sense of history and tradition abounds in all of the works of Malamellis. Just as his writing reflects legends and actual events recalled by island elders, so too do his original oil paintings evoke the enduring grace and serenity of the beautiful locales of Lesvos.

Bitter Laughter--by Malamellis

With his Bitter Laughter, Panagiotis Melemellis manages to keep alive and bring near us an era that is gone. The author loves the world he grew up in. A multitude of people parade through his pages and with his pen he "paints" their simplicity, their faults, their cunnings, their craftiness and their human nature.
