Alfie Gatt was born in 1985 in the small and sunny island of Malta. His drive and passion for his love of art started in his early childhood years. He pursued his studies and was successfully awarded a degree from the Institute of Art & Design, in Malta in 2005. Out of college, he was still finding his own path since art was no easy means to bring food to the table. So he strived hard to add another creative related skill, by teaching himself the techniques of video editing and 2D animations.
In 2011, Alfie decided to experiment with combined all his learned skills with his experiences by publishing his first video paint on social media. This was an original way to express his painting process to the general public. Not only were the videos a window to his way of painting, but they were gladly welcomed by TV stations to be aired even during prime time as fillers between programs.
Alfie’s current style is a mix of figurative and surrealism by giving the artworks unique style and visually pleasing and yet contemporary. He fondly describes his artistic work as a balance and marriage of graphical and fine art. This effect is demonstrated by using multiple mediums such as watercolour, ink, coloured pencil, acrylic, and wax pastels.
By profession, Alfie is a full-time Graphic Designer/Artist at a private company.
