 Christopher Saliba 

Christopher Saliba is a graduate B. Educ. Art (Hons.) from the University of Malta. There he studied under noted artists Harry Alden and Anton Aguis. In 1997, he was granted a four-year scholarship to the Accademia di Belle Arti "Pietro Vannucci" in Perugia, where he studied at the Cattedra di Pittura under internationally renowned artist and academy professor Sauro Cardinali.

The period he spent in Italy enabled Christopher to imbibe the current trends in art. He took part in collective exhibitions and produced various installations. He was able to travel a lot, and was profoundly influenced by the art of the region. The medieval maestros of Umbria, Perugino, Piero della Francesca as well as Alberto Burri are a guiding light in his art.

Other artists like Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Nicholas de Stšel also influenced his art. The distance from home enabled Christopher to appreciate further the unique values and the richness of his native culture. After all, art has no cultural, geographic confines or barriers.
