Biography

Ġulja Holland (born 1990, Malta) is a figurative painter based between Malta and London. The artist's psychologically charged works explore themes of identity, love, human conflict and her growing concern for the natural environment. Holland’s work explores the darker aspects of the human condition on a personal scale as well as on a global scale. Self-identity, environmental destruction and existentialism are recurring themes in Holland’s work. Her paintings drive through expressive and experimental styles that push through conventional aesthetic boundaries and which are themed around self- identification and socio-political issues. Ġulja lives and works in London, UK.
