Henry Falzon is an artist based in Malta and is entirely self-thought. Having no formal academic training is tough, but on the plus side Henry’s views are not boxed in by specific schools of thought. Below are the key points that summarise Henry’s journey.
1974 - Birth - Attard, Malta
1980s - sketching and doodling is a constant background activity in my childhood / teen days.
1990 - 1997 - Black & White photography - developing own film and print making - my formative years
2002 - 2010 - early oil painting phase - producing acceptable ‘early’ style work in small volumes
2011 - 2013 - early pastel phase - producing highly stylised pinstripe artwork
2013 - Group exhibition participation with the Malta Pastel Society
2014-2017 - en plein air phase with a robust output of quality work - oils - watercolour - acrylics
2016 - 2017 - various participations in group shows with the Plein Air Painters of Malta
2018 - present - left plein air work to pursuit narrative studio concepts using mainly pastels
2019 - May - small solo exhibition in Valletta - Morphing Isles
2019 - November - full bodied solo exhibition at Gallery 23 Malta - The Bicycle Ride - featuring a strong retrospective element.
2020 - the pesky Covid year - no exhibitions but plenty of artistic work was done!
