CONTEMPORARY FINE ARTIST

Portrait Paintings / Commissions / Landscapes / Still life
While art has played an important role in my life since as long as I can remember, this will be the first time I am actively seeking to pursue this as a fulltime occupation alongside my filmmaking. It's an exciting step to explore my love for painting and to see how far I can take it. I've divided the site into smaller sections - each one a theme, one that I wish to pursue over the course of the year. some pages are already full of artworks, others are still work in progress, any artworks that are in line with any of the themes will eventually be placed in its respective page. I hope you enjoy following my journey - you may want to follow my work on instagram as I explore these themes in more depth.

COMPLETED WORK

Below is a selection of paintings that I am currently working on or have already completed. By clicking on the image you will be able to see the full series as I continue to develop them. Each theme is followed by a brief explanation of why I choose to pursue these subjects along with an understanding of the direction I want to take them. These themes are fundamentally what make up the main focus of this year - identity. A study of those people, locations, subjects that make me who I am today. To purchase any of these paintings you may get in touch in the email below.

MALTA LANDSCAPES

A SERIES IN OIL
A SERIES OF OIL PAINTINGS SHOWING THE COUNTRY THAT RAISED ME: MALTA
A Nostalgic look back on the place where I grew up, featuring some of the most significant landscapes on the Islands. More importantly it aims to capture specific moments; early dawn, summer sunsets, those moments that remain in my minds eye and are able to transport us back to those special moments of tranquility and peace, so much so that you can even smell the warm summers air and feel the cool sea breeze. This theme will eventually merge with the theme of family, as I look back at capturing some special moments I experienced as a child, as well as moments that I am now capturing in my own family on our holidays in Malta and more.

IL FAMILJA / MY FAMILY

WORK IN PROGRESS
A SERIES OF OIL PAINTINGS
These portraits are meant to capture my family in traditional portraits as well as in candid moments both in Malta and UK. There is still a nostalgic essence to this series, focusing on those closest to me, and moments that we have shared in the past. It will hopefully evoke other peoples child hood memories, playing in the park or swimming in the clear blue sea.

LONDON LANDSCAPES

Work in progress
A STUDY OF THE AREA I NOW LIVE IN
Since moving to London my life has changed in a significant way. There has been a lot of growth, and I do feel a very different person to whom I was when I first came here 12 years ago. Since then I have made West Norwood, Crystal palace and West Dulwich area my home and that of my children. This is a way of giving back to the community that has transformed me and helped me raise my three boys and become the person I am today

PORTRAIT SERIES

WORK IN PROGRESS
INSPIRED BY HAMMERSCHOI, A STUDY IN PORTRAT PAINTINGS
A Series of portrait paintings in oil that are inspired by those of Vilhelm Hammerschoi. After attending an exhibition at the Royal Academy, this dutch painter has had a profound effect on my work both as an artist and as a filmaker, constantly drawing on his paintings as inspiration and a starting point for my work.
