Art for the shift

Marking The Shift’s fifth anniversary, 17 of Malta’s top artists have kindly donated their work to support our efforts in investigative journalism. All of us at The Shift are incredibly honoured to receive their endorsement. We are proud that they are taking a stand in support of our goals.

The 19 artworks shown on this page will be exhibited at Studio 104 in Valletta on 3rd and 4th December, from noon till 6pm, and will exclusively be sold there.

The proceeds from the sale will go to supporting our investigations into corruption as well as our advocacy for press freedom. The price of each painting was set by the artist.
