Alexia Coppini is a Maltese painter who creates fantastic seascapes and ethereal skies.
The common thread in Alexia's paintings is representations of big skies and vast seas. They represent the natural environment in the most tranquil manner. Alexia lives by the sea and is therefore easily absorbed by the beauty of the sea and the natural environment. Alexia's paintings evoke a sense of the spiritual as well as the fluid nature of the sea, and the light in the air creates a play with memory in timelessness.
Her interest in art started when she was at school and continued later in life. Alexia studied art under the guidance of Ms Margaret Chircop, her art teacher at the Convent of the Sacred Heart. During these years she developed her talent and later discovered that life could be better fulfilled through artistic expression that gives satisfaction not only to herself but also enjoyment to whoever shares in her work. Later in life Alexia attended art courses by Mr Anton Calleja and Ms Debbie Caruana Dingli. The artist is versatile in various subjects, which include portraits, still life and animals. For her the natural environment is a great source of inspiration.
Alexia's attitude to her art and to creativity is two-fold: an intimate eye for what is beautiful and appealing in nature and her emotional connection with the world.
Through her art Alexia is lives in times of joy and serenity. It is another artistic statement in her continuous exploration of nature. The artist's pictorial vocabulary is made of imaginative harmonies which are not difficult to forget. And yet her canvases have another function, which is to make us escape from our modern crises, and which ultimately reveal an aesthetic sensibility towards nature.
Alexia has exhibited in various collective exhibitions and no less than 22 most successful solo shows at: Artitude Gallery, The Malta Chamber of Commerce and Industry, on board The MS Hera, The Royal Malta Yacht Club, The Malta Maritime Authority, Hilton Olbia - Sardinia, Brown's - Valletta Waterfront, The President's Palace, San Anton, The Art Lover's Gallery in Porto Cupecoy, St Maartin, The Caribbean, The Plaza Mall, Sliema, The Mediterranean Conference Centre, Valletta, Alexia Coppini Fine Art Gallery, Sliema, Casa Ellul, Valletta, Le Meridien Hotel, St Julians, Spinola Terrace, St Julian's Malta, Sonesta Maho Resort, St Martin, The Caribbean and The Phoenicia Hotel, Malta, The Monestary of Ochsenhausen, Germany and Gallery 23, Malta. These exhibitions have aroused interest in her works and introduced her to an ever widening clientele.
She has personally presented two paintings, a seascape and an abstract, to the Board of the Royal Academy of Arts in London for inclusion in their regular Summer exhibition. Alexia has been entrusted with various important commissions in Malta, and apart from exporting numerous works has also travelled to Holland to carry the execution of large murals.
In July 2019, she was invited to exhibit 5 of her seascapes in the Anton Schranz exhibition held in Ochsenhausen, Germany.
'To the Lighthouse', her latest collection of works, is now showing at Gallery 23, Idmejda Street, Balzan, Malta. The exhibition is open to the public every Tuesday and Friday until the 23rd September, 2019 or by appointment.
