Description

John Vic Borg
Oil on Canvas
40cm x 60cm
 
I was born in Mellieha, Malta on the 5th September 1971. My parents emigrated to Australia when I was 9 months old. Ever since I could walk I would always be found with pencils and paper in my hands drawing whatever came to my mind. When my parents returned to Malta, I found it hard to adjust at first, but I always found time to escape to another world through drawing, where I would spend every free moment sketching, bringing my imagination to life. It was during those years at school that my teacher Mr Alfred Vella encouraged me to take art seriously and arranged private art lessons for me with artist Mrs Doris Fenech from Mosta. At the age of 10 I started using oils on canvas for the first time and quickly fell in love with the medium and haven’t stopped using it since.  Oils give me a feeling of freedom to blend the colours as I please because they remain crisp, sharp and vibrant without losing any texture. No matter how many years may go by, a well kept painting will still look as if it has just left the artist’s hands.
