City Visual !The built environment is always changing, growing and shrinking. Disappearing blocks regenerate, in a cycle, much like this minute long projection as it plays in a loop accompanied by sound. When will the city be completed? Like the sea the concrete does not reach a stagnant point of still, as construction and demolition adds and subtracts from the physical hard shape of boundary walls, where blocks become sky and sea becomes land. Italo Calvino in his book Invisible Cities writes “The city is redundant: it repeats itself so that something will stick in the mind…Memory is redundant: it repeats signs so that the city can begin to exist.” A city is not only real in stone and steel but also something created in the imagination, in Film.
Justine Navarro, graduate BA Hons Design Branding & Marketing from UCA UK and MFA in Digital Art from UOM, creates new interactive video art installations and enjoys producing synchronised visuals for music a progression from experience working professionally as photographer and videographer on tours for companies over seas, and attending projection mapping workshops in Berlin with the United VJs.
Nothing is too daring and too much is never enough
Out of Malta I designed this album cover designed from the recording artists alien zoo originating from Sydney Australia. its was available to buy online but is currently out of stock and print.
The freest form of graphic design is when designing for music. ✌The cover image for Punk is alive & full booklet and disk. Collage is the style I choose to work with most often! The mix of imagery and process is fast to assemble it reflects the over the bombardment of images that we are subjected to daily.
Did you ever wonder how many images we see daily? often inundated with messages left right and centre …Dozens? Dozens? Hundreds of them? Or perhaps thousands? Actually, our daily exposure to advertisements depends on many factors— from where we live to what job we do and how we prefer to spend our time. A figure fro 2007 had already stated that we are subjected to viewing 5000 ads per day .

A nice Blog article from Simon At djar
In the early 19th century, Malta, an archipelago in the Mediterranean, became a British Crown Colony and remained so until 21 September 1964, when it became an independent sovereign state. Malta was declared a republic in 1974.
Malta is a member of the United Nations and the Commonwealth of Nations. Malta was admitted to the Council of Europe soon after independence. In the mid-1980s, Malta was transformed into a flourishing economic hub. Malta began to be regarded as an attractive freight transhipment point, financial center and tourist destination by the international community.
The manufacturing industry is also expanding. It was around this time that Malta started to show an interest in joining the European Community. Malta joined the European Union (EU) in May 2004 and the euro (EUR) was adopted on 1 January 2008 a few years later. Malta’s capital is Valletta and Maltese and English are the official languages.
The Maltese financial services industry has grown substantially in recent years( especially after EU membership) and is one of the fastest growing sectors, taking advantage of a number of key attributes offered by Malta, including a highly qualified workforce, excellent service, competence, technical infrastructure and robust legislative and regulatory frameworks, including tax efficiency.
THE BEAUTY OF MALTA ART EVERYWHERE
Although isolated, Malta’s art was rich and varied, beginning with the decoration of its Neolithic temples dedicated to fertility cults. Dalam is the first pottery of its type found in the Mediterranean. Malta’s prehistoric art ranges from animal stone engravings to the elaborate floral altar in the village of hagar-Qim. During this period, however, stylized figurines or complex spiral reliefs (sculptures) have a sophisticated design and are rich in symbols.
When the Phoenicians arrived in Malta, artistic works became very different, with delicate ivory carving and even a calcareous statuette of a man in draped clothes. Jewelry pieces found in tombs dating from around 900 BC include gold beads, rings, bracelets and image- working armlets.
During the Punic period, Maltese art, like the rest of the Mediterranean, was influenced by the Greek tradition, as can be seen in its marble sculpture, pottery of fine craftsmanship and terracotta figurines found in Tas-Sil impossible. The Roman occupation in 216 BC ensured the blossoming of art in the form of wall paintings and mosaics, portraits and sculptures, statues and bas reliefs. There are many examples at the Roman Domus in Rabat, where the floors are decorated with intricate mosaic designs.
From this period survive fine marble statues, including large draped figures, and statues of Roman gods. With the spread of Christianity to Malta, the Punic-Roman tombs in the region of Rabat have been extended to accommodate Christian funeral. The paintings and sculptures in some of these catacombs dating back to the 4th century or later show that the islanders felt closer to eastern or Byzantine Christianity culturally.
This community and its traditions were destroyed by the landing in Malta of Muslims from Tunisia in 869. After being abandoned in the centuries of Arab domination, parts of these catacombs seem to have been used again in later medieval times with some of the better preserved and more defined fresco paintings from the end of the 13th to the beginning of the 16th.
In 1530, as King of Sicily, Charles I of Spain passed over to the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem on the Maltese islands, whose rule lasted until 1798. The arrival of these knights from all over Europe brought greater European influences, especially from Italy and the Flemish, and centuries of support for the arts followed.
The most remarkable of the artists attracted to Malta was Caravaggio, whose St. Jerome and St. John ‘s Beheading remain a magnet for artists. The wall paintings of Mattia Preti also add to the glory of St. John’s Co-Cathedral includes works by Filippo Paladini, Matteo Perez d’Aleccio, Antoine de Favray, Guido Reni, Jusepe de Ribera, Carlo Maratta, and works by Melchior Gafà, Gio. Nicola Buhagiar and Francesco Zerafa of Malta’s own.
A sad period of pillage and dispersal of works followed the 1798 French occupation of Malta and during the early decades of British rule over Malta. Numerous works of art were thus lost forever. The early British period after the expulsion of the French was dominated primarily by foreign painters such as Gianni, Charles de Brockdorff and the family Schranz. However, this changed in the 20th century, when Maltese artists like Antonio Sciortino, Giuseppe Calì, were extremely talented.The enthusiasm of the post – war years and the independence of Malta produced an artistic enthusiasm led by Josef Kalleya, Alfred Chircop, George Preca, Anton Inglot, Emvin Cremona, Frank Portelli, Antoine Camilleri and Esprit Barthet, who succeeded in leading Malta beyond its traditional roots to a more modern artistic form. Malta remains extremely rich in artistic talent to this very day, with artists exploring different fields and several e
