Sketching Malta

Sketching Malta

One of the many pleasures of working on a project like the Malta Culture Guide is the fact that you have to actually go and work on site to record interviews, take pictures, measure distances between one location and another, etc. Although it’s a working situation and you are extremely busy,  all day long your eyes can’t avoid looking around and feel captured bythe picturesque and visually inspiring scenes. Malta is a little gem for photographers and painters… The light, the contrast between the yellow stone and the blue sky, the sunsets, the narrow streets, the traditional boats … It’s impossible not to stop and freeze that moment in a photo or a sketchbook like I did last time…

A SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY
You might also be interested in hearing some personal impressions from contemporary artists living in Malta. We recorded a podcast a few years ago, called “A Sentimental Journey” in which 3 artists (James Vella Clark, Kenneth Zammit Tabona and Laurent Muller) – explain how they relate to Valletta and what it means to live in Malta today. It’s like an emotional journey where the islands’ characteristic elements of light, shadow, stone and sea become a vital source of inspiration.
Close your eyes and let yourself follow the flow of their words, their stream of counsciousness …
