Christopher Vidal is a professional artist born in Malta and living in Sydney since 2009. His interest in drawing started at an early age and when he was 13 he attended the School of Arts at Palazzo de La Salle in Malta, where for 3 years he studied drawing mainly from life and sculpture. His works are found in private and corporate collections in Australia‚ Malta‚ China‚ UK and United States.
Chris enjoys painting various subjects using various media, however he is more focused on painting the landscape in oils or acrylics. He finds that when painting the landscape he connects to his innate love for science, environment and arts. Through landscape painting he feels himself connected to nature. His skill is continuously developing and is driven by his personal observation of what is around him which inspires him and then he translates on the canvas using paint. Chris is passionate about his work and gives importance to the quality of materials that he uses for his paintings.
Through his work Chris wants to deliver a message to everyone that sees or owns his work. Apart from sharing his own travelling experiences of places that maybe not everyone manages to see, the message is about the beauty of being alive on this planet and to enjoy living every moment of it. We exist for a very insignificant amount of time and hence we need to do the best out of it while not forgetting that we are part of nature and hence act responsibly to care for it and to leave it unharmed for future generations to enjoy.
Chris is also a tutor and he teaches drawing and painting to adults and children in several locations around Sydney.
