Renowned graffiti artist Twitch chose the skate park in Tal-Qroqq to portray his satirical vision of the country’s ‘haunted’ political scene. “I basically used Halloween as a way to satirise on the heaviness of the whole situation,” he told MaltaToday.

“I tried to use some wit and Halloween is perfect to portray our monsters and get away with it - hopefully!” 

The main focus of the mural is a scene depicting Prime Minister Joseph Muscat extending his hand to be kissed. “This is about the saying in Sicilian - baciamo le mani (kiss the hand),” Twitch said. “It’s a Mafia thing where they kiss the hand of the boss to show respect.” Twitch said he had also included the cranes so to give the typical Halloween eerie house a few extra concrete floors.

“I included both parties to keep it satirical too, apart from tha fact that I think they’re all monsters.”
