Marina Syntelis (b.1975) went back in time to bring back a painting technique favoured by the Old Masters, incorporating a secret recipe of blending resins, linseed oil, turps and oils to create an incredible luminescence , vitality depth to her oil paintings. A beautiful painting described in Marina's'own words as:'
"An angelic scene. The foam turns into cloud. It could take place either in the sea or the heaven. The pureness of the white creates a different energy, a different feeling. According to the ancient Greek mythology, Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty was born in the sea foam. To me, it can’t have been much different from this.
However as well as being a hyper - realist painter in terms of atmosphere, she allows for an element of magical realism and even some abstraction to create her stunning and highly moving scenes. Crashing waves meet misty. ethereal waters in a cascade of foam and water and emotion!

At Marina's 1st UK Solo Exhibition recently at the Southampton International Boat Show, where 43 paintings of hers were sold, there were looks of sheer amazement at the power of her paintings and the emotion it envoked within the viewer.
Steve Burnage at The Papillon Gallery believes that "Marina is one of the finest living seascape artists in the world and the incredible feedback from so many people at the International Boat Show in Southampton is a testimony to where her star is heading!"
