Raymond Pitrè M.O.M. (b.1940) is a visual artist from Malta, who experiments with painting, drawing, sculpture and writing. His work, including his portraiture, is manifest to a visual methodology that is informed by the landscapes and vocabularies of human experience. Entwined with events and processes in the world, his practice is also grounded in autobiographical memory and shifting personal geographies. In a body of work that conveys intensity and action, trauma, death, traces and the ardently personal are recurring subject matters. These are revisited and rearticulated frequently through a wide variety of media. Raymond Pitrè’s work has been exhibited internationally in London, Berlin, Florence, Copenhagen, Brussels, Palermo, Algiers, New York and Kyoto. He represented Malta at the Venice Biennale in 1999 and his work is housed in national collections and other institutions. He was made a Member of the National Order of Merit of the Republic of Malta in 2000 for services to art. Raymond Pitrè continues to live and work in Malta.
