Summer Bright

by Micallef Stephen

The work portrays the special relationship between a tiny man-made bay within a dense urban context. Nonetheless, the sun is out, so out come the deckchairs, packed lunches and beer cans.

Stephen focuses on urban sketching and painting, as a form of exploration of environments, especially the relationship between people and the built environment. He does this in an attempt to merge his academic architectural training with other forms of art. His works are mainly based on observation, often sketched from life and sometimes brought together in a collage-like manner through the superimposition of sketching over painting and vice versa.
