Anna Calleja is a 22-year-old Maltese multidisciplinary artist working in paint, print and sculpture.
Calleja's work is a bridge to home; revolving around her family and thoughts about Malta. Her current body of work explores melancholy in the domestic space, using the process of painting to create quiet moments of introspection.
Calleja has exhibited in the UK and Malta, in locations such as the Wignacourt Museum in Malta, Porthmeor Studios in Cornwall and at Tate St. Ives in a group exhibition, Environments.
