Christopher Vidal was born in Malta, studied arts at the School of Arts in Valletta. For twenty year he worked as a medical scientist and researcher in Malta and Australia, but his innate love for art was always there. In 2009, Chris moved together with his family to Australia. Chris has been painting from childhood and for the last ten years most of his works were landscapes in oils. After moving to Australia he was motivated to paint more regularly and experimenting with various media and techniques. Since 2012, he regularly exhibited his work in various group exhibitions in Sydney organised by various societies and organisations. Since then his work was bought by clients in Australia and Internationally.
His work mostly consists of landscape paintings in oils and acrylics painted in an impressionistic / realistic style. Although sometimes science and arts are seen so distinct, being controlled by the opposite sides of the brain, Chris discovered that painting landscapes links together his love for science, nature and painting. Chris also sees that creativity is important in both arts and science. Travelling around the country and being closer to nature inspires him and hence increased his creative productivity. Painting helped him to start observing and appreciating more what is all around us, even the simplest things that we take fore-granted in everyday life. His landscape paintings usually represent places that he visited and to which he had a special connection that inspired him. With his paintings he wants to share his personal experience with the viewer.
His favourite style varies from impressionism to realism, with his favourite colours being blue, purple and orange. “Finding Peace in Art” is what he wishes to the viewer of his artwork. Unfortunately we hear a lot of negativity from the media in everyday life however; Chris sees that in reality much more good things happen in everyday life. So through his artwork, Chris wants to deliver this message and show that life is beautiful and that we must enjoy and appreciate every moment of it since we cannot get back not even one second that just passed.
