Taken from Dante, this work was part of a collective exhibition that was going to happen in collaboration with Dark Malta Heavy Metal Music Festival in 2020. The works I have prepared for this event were all taken from Dante Canto V. The painting represents a dying man in a state of elevation to indicate the soul. The soul of Dante when hearing the story of Paolo e Francesca two lovers punished by God and sent to Hell for following their passion. In this painting, I have tried to understand the overwhelming feeling of the poet by comparing it to my own personal experiences related to romance and love.
Dark Malta Festival and Art Exhibition were postponed due to the Pandemic and are currently planned for April 2022.
