Malta in Splashes – Olga Dmitryeva
During the month of July 2019, Palazzo de Piro will host another exhibition of water colour paintings by Olga Dmitriyeva. Hailing from Kazakhstan, Olga lived in Europe for many years. Having lived in seven countries and visited over 50, she loves to keep diaries on which she enjoys sketching. These scores of notebooks now contain hundreds of sketches and drawings from each country she visited or lived in.
The exhibition renders many of the Maltese landmarks on paper with a colourful and personal touch. It plunges into a world of juicy and tasty fruits and vegetables that are grown in Malta while inspiring people to appreciate daily scenes taking place on the sunny island.
Dedicated to this wonderful island that stole Olga’s heart where she has been living permanently for the past three years, the art exhibition showcases its widely known and less famous sights, landmarks, and products. The official opening of the event will take place on July 5, 2019 at 7.30pm and everyone is welcome at Palazzo de Piro. Snacks and drinks will be offered at the opening ceremony. You will have the opportunity to talk directly with the artist, interact with other guests, enjoy the atmosphere and purchase any art works that catch your eye.
More information about the artist can be found on www.sketchgingereeo.com or on Instagram @sketch.gingereeo.
Entrance for the launch night is free and the art exhibition will be on for the whole months of July and August.
