Charles Bezzina

Watercolours, Acrylics, Oils
Special subjects

Charles Bezzina paintings are set in places that are remote and isolated, places he travelled to throughout his artistic life. Bezzina paints the natural environment and ecological system using contemporary colours to interpret the past and present. Charles embraces an extensive range of mediums and techniques on paper and large canvases using both traditional and contemporary methods. He has always been fascinated by both the world at his feet and the universe beyond the horizon. Born and bred on the Island of Malta and have lived In England for 40 years. He has trekked some of the most isolated landscapes, such as the Sahara Desert, and recently trekked and painted Plein �Air in Iceland, Arctic Norway and Greenland. He uses watercolours, acrylics, and Oils as his main mediums.

Charles has exhibited his art in the UK and overseas and his paintings are in public and private collections. His debates and lectures are always presented with great enthusiasm, and friendly approach.

Charles Bezzina paintings seem to convey a sense of awareness of the landscape he works on during his artistic expedition trips. Some of his paintings have become more dreamlike and visionary based on factual Landscapes.

This year Charles has successfully completed, an artist in residency at Upernavik Museum North West Greenland, and visited some of the most impressive Landscape and Icefjords, in the World namely the Ilulissat Icefjords where he painted Plein Air. Mother Earth provided me with perfect weather for a few days therefore, I painted as much as possible out on the rocks of Ilulissat and in the small town of Upernavik, stated Charles a truly special places which fitted within his theme of 'In Search of Ice made in Heaven' portfolio.
