Anna Calleja (b.1997) is a Maltese multi-disciplinary artist working in paint, print, and sculpture. Calleja has exhibited in Malta and abroad, at the Wignacourt Museum in Malta and at Tate St.Ives, Porthmeor Studios, and at the Mall Galleries in London. In 2020, her painting, “Alone in Quarantine” was awarded a Winsor and Newton Young Artist Award at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition.
Her current body of work retires to the comfort and melancholy of home, using the process of painting and printmaking to create quiet moments of introspection.
