VIVID – new exhibition with Graham Gurr at Arthall in Gozo

VIVID - new exhibition with Graham Gurr at Arthall in GozoLater this month, Arthall in Gozo will be hosting VIVID – the first solo exhibition by local artist Graham Gurr.

With large canvases painted with strikingly bright and intense colours, the artist invites the public to delve into a world of celebration and good vibes. Fantasy lands painted partly with flatness and naivety are put together like patchwork.

The gallery said that the exhibition also includes two large paintings filled with human shapes in a pop art style: a social commentary on the lack of communication, physical interaction, and isolation brought in by social media. “It is an exhibition to enjoy, reflect on, and get carried away.”

Graham Gurr is a British and Maltese citizen who, for the past twenty-six years, has resided in Nadur and is married to a Gozitan. He has held numerous exhibitions in Gozo and Malta, as well as in London, Edinburgh, Rome, New York and Osaka.

Graham studied Interior Design and Fine Art in London and Edinburgh, gaining a BA Degree in Interior Design from Napier University Edinburgh. He studied for his PGCE art teaching certificate at Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh.

Later, he studied for a postgraduate certificate in research methods and a Master Degree in Maltese Contemporary art research at Grays School of Art. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
