Description

Inspired by a contentious debate in Joseph’s home country, Malta, between the neighbouring towns of Valletta and Floriana as to who owns the Triton’s Fountain, ‘Octriton’ is a glorious creature who rises from the depths of the ocean to make it his.

For Joseph, the fountain is a national monument and ownership shouldn’t be restricted to a regional rivalry; 'Octriton' is the third, winning player.

Unmissable thanks to its positioning at the entrance of Valletta, the Triton’s Fountain has been restored to its former glory. “I had to take several photos of it to find the best angles,” says Joseph, “and it wasn’t easy because of the tourists flocking to see it.” The artwork features different photos of the fountain, whereas the octopus and tentacles are a mix of stock photography and 3D renders.

The final touch? Pigeons, of course, found everywhere in Valletta, just to add more realism to the scenes. 'Octriton' is one of the
art prints for sale from this shop.
