Scialta is the chosen name for this first solo exhibition
by Stiefnu De Battista. An interplay of words between the names of two geographically distinct locations, but ones which have equally shaped the artist's journey: Sciacca, a town on the southwestern coast of Sicily characterised by a thriving fishing industry, and our beloved Malta in the heart of the Mediterranean.
The artist engages into a creative process that sees variations of the marine-life theme being explored and manipulated into both two- and three-dimensional form, through painting and sculpture, and presented on different grounds. The works of art featured in this exhibition are a product of the development cycle that initiated in 2007.
We welcome you to put on your diving equipment and let’s discover the underwater world of Stiefnu.
