ARTIST PROFILE

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 his paintings, he is intended to capture the intimacy of solitude and silence. The scenes create a dreamlike atmosphere, allowing the viewer to escape into a trance of peace, delving into nature where one feels most comfortable. The blank spaces are an interpretation of a transition of the state of mind when an individual pauses to ponder nostalgically on memories when we used to care so much more about what’s happening around us and simplicity.  

Alfie’s current style is a mix of figurative and surrealism by giving the artworks unique style and visually pleasing and yet contemporary. He 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.
