Daphne Bugeja | Malta @inka.workshop
Artist participating in 20 x 20 Exhibition: Edition 2
Daphne Bugeja completed her architecture degree at The University of Malta in 2013 and furthered her studies at Politechnico di Milano (Italy). This not only helped her expand her knowledge, but also fuelled her passion for drawing, driving her to develop an important niche in architecture. For Daphne, sketching was always an essential medium to use when words weren’t enough. Examining urban cityscapes that she visited in the past years coupled with Bugeja’s freehand illustrative explorations of detailed architecture led to the birth of ‘inka’. Inka is a perfect combination of both my enthusiasm towards architecture and drawings.
This time, illustrating one of our masterpiece - the facade of the Siggiewi Church, in a deeply felt impression of the place, whilst bringing in intimacy today`s skylines. The amount of details illustrated in the sketch, allows the viewer to appreciate the grandeur and quality of our past architecture, whilst creating awareness to preserve and conserve our heritage. An earth colour is being used to bring the main object in a spotlight. The chosen colour sitting in the background is a basic earth colour as a strong connotation between the ground and other spaces which must be identified as our “common ground”.
