Ryan Falzon (b.1988) is a painter and printmaker based between Malta and Berlin. His vibrant, expressive works deal with the contemporary themes of duality, narrative, social media, human interaction and existential conditions. Since 2020 Falzon has been working on the Botanica Series, a collection of internal scapes/still lifes that has received much positive critical attention. A direct result of Covid-19 pandemic, the main themes portrayed here are suggestive domestic spaces and growth. Since 2009, Falzon has participated in a significant number of solo and collective exhibitions in Malta and Europe.
His works can be found in both public and private collections in Europe and the US. Between 2013 and 2015, Falzon managed the Xarolla Windmill Project, aimed at supporting emerging artists. His body of work between 2016 and 2019, such as Quick Fix: A Morality Tale (2016), We Lost the War (2017) and Culture is Past Art is Future (2018), has become a reference in recent local political art. He is also involved in local literary circles, and has had his works published in local anthologies. He is currently working on his first novel. Falzon is an art educator and is currently reading for an MA in Fine Arts at the University of Malta.
