2001 - Morden Paint Sydney Australia

But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large. We even saw descendants of Anak there. x

First Move

In October 1998 Evos moved with his family from Israel to Fairfield NSW, close to the house of his brother-in-law Alberto who was operating a business in the painting trade. Evos was Alberto’s trainer of special finishes back in Italy in the early 90’s.

Morte Lake

In March 1999, after four months of local market research and with the assistance of Evos’ Australian brother Eran, we set up our business entities under the trading name of MPSA. We leased premises in Mortlake, Concord and fitted it out to our business needs: studio/showroom, 2 offices, reception and storage room. In 2000 we moved MPSA to premises in 136 Mitchell St. Glebe NSW.

From 1999 to 2001 my family remained in Israel and I traveled four times between Tel Aviv and Sydney for work. In December 2000 I had my second Child as a sister to her three old brother. In Israel I was terminating my business obligations with Dovlar Material Systems and also winding up my personal and Evos’ affairs. Evos took care of the day-to-day operations while I monitored the business from Israel on a daily basis through faxes and telephone contact. During the first three trips I stayed and worked in Sydney for a total of five months. 6 June

Third touch

22 March 2001 - 25 May 2001 I returned to Sydney for a third time for another two months. By that time Morden Paint had moved to premises in Glebe and I resided during my stay in the studio gallery. In 2001 Morden Paint had completed the La Vigna Restaurant Project that also won the Master Painter Association Award for Excellence in Decorative Finishes.

The industry awards

In 2001 Morden Paint had completed the Arnott Residence Project that later won both the Master Painter Association Award for the Project of Year in NSW and the Decorative Material Supplied to the Project of the Year.
