          ARTIST & ARTWORK

          Melanie Hava Hailing from the Wet Tropics of Far-North Queensland and identifying as a Mamu Aboriginal woman, Melanie Hava draws continuous inspiration from the reef and rainforest for her artistic creations. Since her early years, Melanie possessed a firm certainty about her destined path as an artist, with art providing her a secure haven.Raised in the embrace of diverse backgrounds, Melanie's lineage is a fusion of her Aboriginal mother and Austrian father. Consequently, her artworks seamlessly interweave not only the distinct hues of Australia's red soils but also subtle European influences, represented by delicate gold leaf embellishments and intricate crystal patterns. In essence, her art harmoniously merges these two cultural threads.Melanie currently resides in Cairns, close to her mother's Country, where she feels close to the spirit of rainforest and reef. Her life evolves around her three children, gallery, and commissioned artworks.

          Utopia Design. "Utopia Great Barrier Reef" by celebrated Aboriginal artist Melanie Hava. The collection captures the mystical allure of the ocean, inspired by Melanie's lifelong fascination with marine life and her cultural connection to The Great Barrier Reef. Ever since her childhood fascination with the little mermaid's tale, Melanie has been entranced by the mysteries of the ocean. Her art piece, "Utopia Great Barrier Reef," is a deeply personal expression of her love for the underwater world, enriched by her cultural roots. As she puts it, "I love to indulge my imagination with scenes of the Great Barrier Reef, a truly underwater utopia land full of beautiful fishes and creatures." This design bring a piece of the underwater utopia into your everyday life. The travel mugs and water bottles are perfect companions for your journeys, adorned with Melanie's vibrant depictions of marine life.
