Anna Grima

Anna Grima (b.1958) is an artist from Malta.

She is an interdisciplinary artist whose works have been exhibited in Malta and abroad. Her earliest formative influence was her aunt Blanche Ellul Sullivan (1907-2002) artist and artisan. Anna began her practice as a graphic designer and illustrator. In 1982 she was awarded a scholarship by the Italian Cultural Institute to study painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti, Perugia Italy, focusing on the study of the nude and tutored by the late Professor Bruno Orfei. Her abstract paintings, watercolours and drawings are a diverse expression of her preferred subject matter and are the outcome of her contact with different cultural and spiritual traditions during her travels in Europe and the Far East.
