Christopher Vidal's Gallery   -   Artist Biography

I am a self-thought artist who learned how to paint simply from experience, observation and from experimenting with colour and different media.

Who I am

  • Born in Malta in 1972

  • At a very young age I had interest in drawing at school (sketching on books, pencil cases etc)

  • Between 1985 - 1987 I attended art classes at the School of Arts in Valletta (Malta Chamber of Arts & Commerce), studied still life drawing and pottery

  • In 1986 participated in the 16th International Children's Art Exhibition (Japan).

  • From 1987 to 1996 worked on various commissioned works in the local community in Sliema and other private works

  • In 2003 started developing my talent in oil painting and other media, working on various Maltese landscapes and still life.

  • January 2009 moved to Athens, Greece where I worked on several watercolour and acrylic paintings of local scenery

  • In September 2009 moved to Sydney, NSW, Australia, living in the Hills Region and working for University of Sydney. Currently working on several private art projects including murals.

I enjoy painting landscapes, seascapes as well as other subjects too. My favourite medium is oil although I enjoy painting with acrylics and watercolours, as well. Oil gives you the capability to develop your painting by blending the colours to the right value and tone. My works are all original paintings and I do not duplicate any of my paintings. For my work I always use very high quality artist grade pigments such as Old Holland, W&N and Michael Harding.

Artist statement:

"With my art I want to present what is all around us in a very realistic way. I want to show the positive side of life, the beauty of nature in all its forms and colours. Unfortunately everyday through the media we hear a lot of negative news of what is happening all over the world and this might have a negative and unrealistic effect on us. If you think about it, a lot of positive things happen everyday (much more than negative) but unfortunately negative news hit more the news headlines. So with my paintings, vibrant colours, tones and value I want to pass this positive message about life, giving people time to think, reflect and to relax."
