Thank you for visiting the Islanesian Experience Etsy shop. All the products featured in this shop are the creations of the Ongelungel Art Dynasty ( and are available through Etsy at a lower-than-regular-retail price.


Hans Ongelungel: Contemporary oil/acrylic paintings, typically depicting Palauan scenery and ancient life in his native Palau. His work has been displayed in galleries internationally, especially throughout western Europe and the Pacific Rim. One of his paintings was presented as a gift to the United States from the Republic of Palau, and is on permanent display at the Department of the Interior in Washington D.C.

"My artwork depicts the traditional Palauan lifestyle and heritage of island people."

Sha Ongelungel: I'll attempt damn-near any form of art, for my own amusement. If something nifty comes of it, all the better!

"I am a proven anomaly within each culture and subculture I represent. It has never been intentional or desired, but it's the way the cookie crumbles. I have my own somewhat warped opinions of how the world should be-- which is testament to my naive idealism."

Yan Ongelungel: Illustration, mixed media, digital photography-- a little bit of everything, really.

"I'm a Pacific Islander by birth, a Palauan by blood, and a Portlander by spirit. This quirky cocktail mix gives way to a variety of unique perspectives and pieces of artwork, as evidenced by the melting pot of creations and ideas I've had over the years. The diversity that other cultures and viewpoints have to offer will never cease to amaze me, and will therefore always serve as a source of inspiration. I'm skeptical to the belief in limitations of artwork, but like anyone else, I reserve the right to say what pieces of artwork I prefer."
