ELISHEBA ISRAEL MROZIK
A Creative Director, Fine Artist + International Award-Winning Tattooist.
A Creative Director, Fine Artist + Graphic Designer.
With two decades of design experience in cities across the country, Mello landed back in her hometown, by way of D.C., Los Angeles and Brooklyn... luckily meeting Elisheba through a collaborative community mural they worked on together years ago in Nashville. Fresh off being recognized for her fine art in Nashville Arts Magazine, these two quickly realized they were both creative "do-ers" with the same mind for community.
Mello stretches her creative muscles through a love of public art, seeking innovative ways to inspire, bring the community together and make movement through interactive art - whether it's painting or pop-up block printing.
Growing up with a mix of cultural influences, she was taught to have an expansive world view by her adopted father who immigrated to the U.S. from Pakistan as a young adult. He made her read and report on local, national + international stories in the newspaper every day growing up, to teach her that the world doesn't revolve around your small perspective. A lesson that follows her closely every day, and one that underlines her excitment to join Elisheba in developing the Culture Wraps concept. (When not on the creative grind, Miss Mello is likely adventuring with her daughter, Marley.)
