Scientology Network’s MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST, the weekly series spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists from around the world and all walks of life, announces an episode featuring master large-scale painter Angelika Mehrens, premiering
MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Angelika Mehrens left her highflying career of fashion modeling behind to pursue her passion for painting. Venturing beyond the confines of a typical canvas, she successfully established herself as a large-scale painter, creating massive murals for residential and commercial clients, and artworks for film and TV.
Angelika Mehrens’s passion for painting began at the age of five. Born in Bamberg, South-Central Germany, her venture across the dividing line into communist East Germany as a child would have a significant impact on the course of her life. Struck by the bleak dreariness of the cityscape she observed there, Angelika’s aim in life became to infuse color and aesthetics into people’s lives. While still in her teens she moved further west to America, where she began a modeling career and suddenly found herself walking the runway in world fashion capitals: Milan, Paris and New York. Despite the glamor of her jet-setting life and posing for designers like Versace, Chanel and Helmut Lang, she never gave up her dream to paint. After eight years, she hung up her couture for a painter’s smock and a palette. Through hard work, ambition and talent her career quickly took off. Now, with private and major commercial clients showcasing her work on their properties from coast to coast and a long list of film and television productions featuring her art, Angelika has established herself as one of the most compelling large-scale painters working today.
