PRINTMAKERS NOW

The World of Printmaking in One Place

About

.I am a Maltese artist…in training at least, who primarily focuses on the art of printmaking. Currently, I am reading for my last year of my degree in Fine Arts at the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology. I believe that art is not just about creating, it is also about sharing. This blog is all about sharing my personal insight on what I know, my experiences in art, and of course most importantly, me.

From a young age, I have always been intrigued by the art of creating, however, the pivotal moment in my artistic experience was my introduction to printmaking techniques a few years back. The technical aspect, disciple and versatility found in printmaking are some of the reasons why I found it to be so intriguing. Even though I mostly work in relief printing, I love to experiment with other printmaking techniques such as mezzotint, drypoint, frottage and monoprinting.

Social, current and controversial subjects are at the core of the work I produce. Social and current themes help me learn more about our current societies while controversial subjects are fun to explore, however they can be very insightful.

I hope this has served as a just peek at my blog and me.
