Mark Mallia

Mark Mallia An abstract artist based in Malta, working mainly in oils and acrylics on and mixed media canvas and paper. His work explores the interaction between shape and form, the effect upon perception and emotion and changing patterns of light and colour, and the tension between control and emotion. He starts with a clear idea of what he wants to achieve, but finds that the paintings takes over and dictate their own final form and now it has become a way of life. He has lived in Europe and has been working as a semi professional artist for the last twenty six years and has exhibited several of his pieces. In his works Mark states that he has taught himself for the most part and now he knows that what he wants to create “visible feelings” that can be shared and experienced by those who care to pause and engage with his work. His paintings are driven by his passion and love of the state of mind at a moment in time. He relishes the prospect of creating a sense of the unimaginable in his paintings. He takes spaces that are familiar to us all and then finds the unexpected within them to make the expression in his own way. After a bursary in Florence (Italy) he acquired a degree from the “Accademia Del Arte” from then, he hired a studio space in Monaco where he began producing painting for an art agent. He also took on mural painting commissions. He always took on these projects with the attitude that if he didn’t know how to paint something, he’d find out by doing it – which along with liberal use has served him well! He held an exhibition in Monaco at The Sporting Club, under the patronage of Princess Stephanie Grimaldi.  All twenty one paintings describes as ugly faces and demons haunting in his head, he sold on the first evening of the exhibit. Following this period, he was perceived by the Italian Ambassador of Malta, and hence Mark spent a year in the Da Vinci countryside, getting inspired its architecture, the ostentatious women and as Mark describes, “the Bohemian characters”.   Upon his return to Malta, Mark exhibited at The National Museum of Fine Arts, a venue where only Master artists have had the privilege to showcase their works.  To this date Mark is the youngest artist to have ever had that claim that fame. His art which in itself is highly dynamic and constantly evolving, with time and experience seems to have matured and reached a peak and he is now creating some outstanding works which the more he lets himself go to his creations the more spectacular pieces are emerging . He relies on the nature of art itself and that implies that when he is engaged in his creating his art it is something that develops by itself, with each piece he creates he reaches a climax which in itself is unique and provides different vibes and sensations when compared to any of his other work. Last December presented his latest collection in Miami in an exhibition at the Art Basel 2014 at Gallery 212 Miami. Many prospective opportunities a wait for the forthcoming year, and one of the most challenging events will be an exhibition happening in the heart of Cosmopolitan London. Mark believes that anyone can be an artist if they let themselves go and let art itself take over. Being liberal and not allowing any parameters and restrictions take over will create spectacular pieces.
