Description:


Born April 1960, studied art in government schools under the guidance of the late Antoine Camilleri, Harry Alden and Anthony Degiovanni and has showcased works in various exhibitions, both solo and collectives. His first real teacher was his late father. He was in the Merchant Navy and used to send letters illustrated with stuff he'd seen and places he visited. As he grew up, the letters held fewer illustrations and scribbles and used to comics, especially American ones illustrated with the best black and white graphics. Those were his first influences. Dad was also his first critic. I remember him once criticizing some drawing I was doing, and in frustration I tore it up amidst a flood of tears.
