Special edition of The Pastizzi Project, a tribute to the French artist Yves Klein. 

International Klein Blue (IKB) is a distinctive ultramarine which Klein first mixed and registered as a trademark color in 1957. Klein considered that this colour had a quality close to pure space and he associated it with immaterial values beyond what can be seen or touched.

The pastizzi project started back in 2017 as a means to democratise and demystify contemporary art within Malta, with an aim to create art work that was familiar and within reach to all social demographics.

The iconic Pastizz serves as a vessel to bridge Maltese contemporary identity and social narratives through sculptural satire. A playful object with many stories to tell.

Each incarnation over the years has seen the pastizzi go from hand sized sculptural pieces, through to jewellery made in silver and precious metals and stones, oversized wall hung sculpture, and more recently, virtual NFT based works.

Each rendition has thus far shed light on the importance of cultural identity through local cuisine, the increasing health risks associated with the adoption of the western diet, a more recent adoption towards conspicuous consumption, and more recently, toxic masculinity and its misogynistic attitude towards women.

Ultimately The Pastizzi Project serves as a reflective satirical tool that attaches itself to both local and international narratives.
