InArte Werkkunst Gallery is pleased to present Il Nudo nell’Arte, a solo exhibition by Patrick Dalli, a painter represented by the gallery.
Born in Malta in 1955, Patrick Dalli is a painter specialised in the figurative arts. His artistic career in figurative arts began at the age of sixteen, to then, in 1995, participate in a painting class held by Anton Calleja, where his passion for the artistic nude emerged. Over the course of his career, he has become known as the painter who examines the naked human body in all its aspects. The technique with which Dalli expresses the various colours, emotions and lines on canvas exalts every different detail and figure of the body, so much so that the art historian Prof. Mario Buhagiar defined him as the “undisputed master of nudes of Malta”. In recent years, the artist has organised numerous exhibitions in both Malta and abroad. Important exhibitions include that at Palazzo Arzilli in San Marino, the one at the Museum of Fine Arts in Malta, and one at Palazzo Collicola in Spoleto, curated by Gianluca Marziani. In 2013 Dalli was chosen as one of the twenty best artists in the Biannual Carlo Bonatto Minella award, with a jury led by Mr. Vittorio Sgarbi.
