An artistic exhibition of colour drawings on paper by Artist Liliana Fleri Soler.

Ħemda is word of semitic origin meaning ‘stillness and silence’. 

It is in such moments that we are inspired, when we are one with our inner being while our mind is still.  It is here that beauty and creativity excel.

In this collection of 21 works, Liliana Fleri Soler expresses her life journey in 2012.  Since the launch many a person have remarked of having felt a melancholy and even a slight heaviness in these works.  Is this a negative aspect in her or better still in art in general?

Most works of Art of repute, or let us say the ones most easily rememberd by all walks of life, do bear in fact some form of pain.  Try to think of the one that comes up first in your mind.  In other words they are certainly not happy chappy pictures.  But is this in fact such a negative thing after all?

It is through some form of crises or tough time, that we evolve and are reborn.  This is the aspect Liliana explores thro…

An Exhibition of Oils on Canvas by Armen Vahramyan

Love, Life and Pomegranates.

Who is Armen Vahramyan and above all what does his Art stand for?

To understand his work one needs to grasp the meaning behind what one observes, and to do this there is no better place to begin with than the land which bore him.

A land of great turmoil, and one which once reached from the Caspian to the Mediterranean Sea, it has now been reduced to a landlocked country, with much of its borders closed, and with its sacred mountain, Ararat, now lying just out of reach in their neighbour’s territories.

Communism, a decimating massacre early in the 20th century [Armenia and France accept it as genocide] the war with Azerbaijan and two massive earthquakes in the late 80’s have shaken the very soul of this cultured and enterprising people.

Armen’s works portray in a bold but colourful palette, using  mythological symbolism  [not least of which the revered Pomegranate] and with hidden subtelty the tragedies of his people which have marked his own life.

Bay Music Awards 2012

The Ninth annual Bay Music Awards saw the Bay Arena come to life, as thousands cheered on for their favourite local bands at the most anticipated music awards show on the island.

This year, the BMAs went a big step further from previous years by introducing live performances as opposed to playback, a step which introduced a whole host of complications to the coordination of the event but one which paid off greatly, Mr Kevin De Cesare, managing director of the Eden Leisure Group stated “Going live was always a goal of ours, but we also wanted to keep the event tight and succinct so that its audience could really enjoy it and not have hang around waiting for the next act to be set up.  With Jon Vella’s expertise we finally found a way to overcome this and we’re so glad we did because the difference in the sound and atmosphere in the Arena was electric, it was like never before.”

16 performances rocked the Arena with Malta’s pop and rock royalty such as Ira Losco, Red Electrick, Scar, Doll…
