The President of the Malta Society of Arts, Dr Vince Briffa, presented the MSA’s Gold Medal to Maltese Artist Gabriel Caruana in recognition for his contribution as an artist and art educator. The private ceremony was held at Gabriel Caruana’s residence in the presence of the Hon. Secretary of the MSA, Mr Eman Grima, and the Caruana family.
Gabriel Caruna (b. 1929) is recognised as perhaps Malta’s most inventive artist and his original approach in the art of ceramics makes him stand out singularly as the person who has worked so intensely in this genre on the local art scene. Through his contribution as an artist he made a name for himself within the mainstream of Maltese artists over the past fifty years and earned esteem on the international scene.
His prolific output includes sculptures in bronze, wood, cement, stone and perspex, paintings, drawings and prints. What he is mostly known for, is his own original interpretation of ceramic art that includes numberous large murals, free standing sculptures, plates and wall plaques with modelled relief, also a note worthy collection of columns.
