John Dimech was born in Malta into a family of jewellery makers. His early inspiration came from watching his two cousins paint in oils, although John has developed a style that uses mainly Acrylics and Watercolours. After spending more than 20 years in England as a professional artist, John was given the chance to produce and present his own Maltese television series exploring and creating art around the country. He has recently returned, challenging himself to produce Abstract paintings still in line with his more traditional work. His ethos, that an artist should always strive to ‘evolve’ his work and challenge his mind and eyes.
