Collage, acrylics, ink, impasto on wood… these are just a few materials that students set to work with to create a set of bright and vibrant art works commissioned by Banif Bank (Malta) plc for its 2013 desk calendar. The works, interpreting the Bank’s slogan “The Power of Believing”, reflect the passion and idealism of youth and the desire to take on the world with confidence and ambition.
The students, second-years at the MCAST Institute of Art and Design preparing for their Higher National Diploma in Fine Art, were given the task to present up to three works for selection and were mostly given a free rein with style and materials. The result is an astonishing and eclectic set of works, smartly packaged in Banif’s 2013 desk calendar.
Banif’s collaboration with MCAST sought to give students a platform for exposure and a chance to bridge their education with the requirements of industry. A copy of the calendar can be picked up from any Banif Bank branch.
