Christopher Vidal

Currently living in Sydney, Maltese-born Christopher migrated to Australia in 2009. His love for the arts started when he was very young. For two years he attended The School of Arts at Palazzo de La Salle in Valletta, Malta. After finishing his academic studies Christopher worked as a medical researcher in Malta and Australia, however, his innate love for painting remained, and more then ten years ago he started painting with oils and fell in love with this versatile and dynamic medium. Traveling around Australia gave Christopher more inspiration and motivation, and since 2012, he's been painting almost every day and exhibiting his work in various art shows in Sydney and surrounding areas. As an artist he expresses himself in his paintings, especially when painting landscapes. His inspiration comes from his love of the arts, science, nature and what is around him. Nature inspires Christopher in many ways; Standing in front of a mountain makes him realise how short our life is, as mountains have been standing much before human existence and will still stand beyond our time. Trees also have a story to tell, as they stand the test of time constantly battling the weather and gravity while searching for light and water. Oceans, lakes and rivers always remind him where all of life started. Strong waves sculpt our coastlines while maintaining the right temperatures on earth necessary to support life. Looking up at the skies reminds Christopher of the vastness of this universe. The glorious moments full of spectacular colours when the sun sets behind the horizon at the end of the day is a time of reflection about the day that just ended, and that every precious second of life should be embraced.
