Matthew F. Cassar

Born in Malta and currently living in Milan, Italy.

I'm a self thought artist with a strong interest in the human figure. I do my best to transmit dynamism and a touch of fun in my paintings. Forever experimenting new media, I like to mix different sorts of paint on wood, using vivid colours yet never abandoning a realistic basis (so far).
