In 2015 Jesmond Vassallo started to organise an annual event dedicated to the art of printmaking. In 2017, iMprint developed into a biennale appointment. This is the only exhibition of its kind in Malta that focusses exclusively on excellent works in the language of intaglio printmaking. By now, iMprint has become a staple in Malta’s art calendar. In past editions, iMpint exhibited works by stalwarts Frank Portelli, Horst Janssen, Marino Marini and Chagall.  The aim of the exhibition is to enhance awareness about the art of original printmaking, particularly intaglio processes. We are pleased to announce that this year’s edition of iMprint will feature a retrospective section consisting of works made by the well-known Carmelo Mangion (who introduced etching at the School of Art).
