Collectors’ Stories

“In 2002 I fell in love with Deborah Azzopardi’s work and Chi bought me a piece for Valentine’s Day. I call this piece Hot Lips! Fast forward to 2020 Deborah has released this beautiful book which I got for my birthday. To top it off she signed it for me!” Emma Cooke

 

“Locked and Secure! This art work – the name says it all – has been with me for over 25 years. Bought in London 1994 it first rested on a wall of my Chelsea flat for a few years. It followed me back to my hometown Zurich, Switzerland. Guests always notice it at first glance. ‘Is this a Lichtenstein?‘ No, it‘s an Azzopardi!‘ ‘Wow!‘ I just feel it has become a very part of my homes and life wherever I stayed and whatever wall it hung on. Locked and Secure, indeed! Deborah, thank you so much.” Roger Oberholzer

 

“This eye has been watching me for over 26 years! 🤭 He (and another of your works) caught MY eye back in the mid 90’s when I was half my age! His visage has invoked several reactions over the years! He was in my first ever flat…. in NW3. I remember a girlfriend covering him with a towel as she felt he was “watching” her 😆 He then moved to my office in NW6 where he reminded me to keep an eye on the detail!! It was good advice! He has always given me (and lately my Nephew) a great and positive energy! That is determination in his eye, not anger… and we can all learn from that! Especially in these days! Cheers for years of pleasure Deborah! And many years to come for my Nephew and his own.” Russel G.

If you would like to send me a photo of you/your family, with your painting in situ, along with your story, I’d be happy to post a photo on my social media. I don’t have to mention your name unless you would like me too?

I love how art makes people feel and what it means to them. It is a huge journey!

 

 

 

Artist in Focus – Deborah Azzopardi

 

Has your art matured with you?

Experience is the best teacher of all. It  has taught me that my whole self, emotions and thoughts, are ‘in’ my work.   I think that’s what makes art powerful and reaches out to others. I wouldn’t like to be judged on any particular painting as it has taken me a lifetime of work.

Do you have a favourite piece of yours?

All of my art is my favourite!  The next painting is always the best and very exciting. It’s a constant feeling of loving the piece I just  finished and really loving the painting I haven’t yet started or maybe that I’m working on.

How quickly do you work?

I work slowly although I think  at top speed, I  can’t paint fast. Each painting can take 3 to 4 months to complete and that doesn’t include the preparation.

How do you feel when you work?

I am totally relaxed when working. Radio and audio books are wonderful company. There are many phone disruptions but my  biggest distraction is  the fridge.

A Decade of Deborah | 14 October – 14 November 2019 ⠀

A Decade of Deborah
Celebrating 10 Years of Partnership
15 October – 15 November 2019 ⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“The art of Deborah Azzopardi is at once playful, humorous, popular, heartfelt and incredibly technically skilled. I continually ask Deborah how she has such a steady hand when composing her masterful drawings and she usually replies that her years as an illustrator for Disney gave her meticulous training as not even a line could be out of place. What is then extraordinary is how the constraints of drawing so perfectly never interfere with her unlimited imagination, subject matter and sheer joy of her painting. There is no question – she is a Pop Art Genius! “ Cynthia Corbett, Director The Cynthia Corbett Gallery​
