Dark Malta Visual Art Exhibition

May 1 @ 7:00 pm - May 15 @ 11:00 pm

Dark Malta Visual Art Exhibition
In collaboration with DJ Hades, this year’s edition of THE Dark Malta FESTIVAL will also include a visual Art exhibition. The participants are Joseph Bugeja, Franco Navarro and Sara Pace. The three artists worked together on three different themes that fit the concept of the Festival which will feature International Metal/Industrial and Gothic rock bands.
The art produced for Dark Malta will offer the following themes, the Seven Deadly Sins by Joseph Bugeja, Inferno by Franco Navarro, and Apocalypse by Sara Pace. The three collaborated and shared ideas on their concepts in order to offer an artistic, but dark, experience to the visitors. Joseph’s Seven Deadly Sins always portray a female figure that symbolizes Malta and all the sins and vices that its society is inflicting on the island. Franco’s work is inspired by Dante’s Hell and takes a twisted psychological interpretation of the poem. Sara will display a number of pen and ink drawings with human vices such as Greed and Gluttony. Her works are particularly in line with contemporary events both through the pandemic and the current war in Ukraine.
In essence, the three are trying to showcase human vices, something very typical of Goth and Metal music since the 70s. Judging from the world’s current events, it is no surprise that such negative feelings, based on fear and anxieties are quite appealing to a considerable number of people, particularly in Northern Europe. Yet, Malta, with all its sunshine, is also getting Darker…
