Science Fair in Valletta

Valletta was the host for ‘Science in the City‘, a night were various venues around the capital offered hands-on experiments, interactive science shows, talks, discussions and a variety of science inspired art that included a small a carnival parade and a graffiti artist. To keep with the theme I shot the event on an old film camera. After all photography makes use of science. Light, time and chemicals on the film.

3D Street Art in the middle of Valletta

With the aim of raising funds, the YMCA and Valletta local council organised the 1st annual Street Art Festival. For this 1st edition street artists were given space in front of the law courts in Valletta to draw 3D images. The main artist and organiser was Maltese Matthew Mifsud with special guest from Italy , Tony Cuboliquido. The day started off with bright sunshine and the occasional drizzle, not strong enough to damage the art work that was covered with plastic sheets although later on in the afternoon the rain was too strong and washed away the drawings. A pity because these designs looked impressive. A few artists returned on Sunday to draw a smaller piece.

This event was a really good idea and hopefully it will become even more popular with Maltese. Street art and graffiti allows creativity to grow, it is a form of art. Unfortunately I met many people and read many comments on line from people who insist this is not art and should not be allowed.

This leads to the million dollar question. What is art?

If young people can create designs by drawing on the ground or by spray painting on a wall who are we to stop them? Should we encourage while teaching them techniques? Is this not another way of gathering them in one safe place to learn while enjoying them selves instead of running around our streets?

I have photographed lots of graffiti and street art while I also visit many art shows. Just like ‘art’ the skill needed for graffiti require hours of practice and also lots of technique. Do not stop young people from expressing themselves. Provide them with space, let them experiment. These activities will help them later on in life.
