Joseph Casapinta Exhibition

Shireburn Software is proud to support local and renowned artist Joseph Casapinta who is launching his 10th solo exhibition on the 4th November, at Palazzo de Piro, Mdina. The exhibition will feature his newest collection of watercolour paintings produced in his studio but also in the style of a true impressionist, en plein air.

Shireburn supports local art and talent as part of its CSR programme through which the company seeks to give back to the community.

The large paintings introduced in this exhibition, a dominant feature in Casapinta’s new collection, display a free flowing style in watercolour.

The exhibition will be entitled “Joseph Casapinta… The Art”, an intimate title which brings together two very important elements: the creator and his creation. A separate publication for this exhibition will provide a more in-depth look at Casapinta, both as the artist but also as a man.

About the artist

Joseph Casapinta, an artist well known for his command of all mediums, has this time embarked upon a creative journey, an exploration of the real places that have inspired him throughout his life. In order to fulfil this, Casapinta has developed a technique with watercolours that is beyond the traditional. Indeed he states unequivocally that his inspiration is part of the technique he uses.
