Trevor BorgTrevor Borg
Trevor Borg was born in 1976 in the small Mediterranean island of Malta. In 1992 he enrolled at the Centre of Art and Design Studies in his homeland from where he obtained a Diploma in 1996. Soon afterwards he read for a degree course at the University of Malta from where he graduated with a BA(Hons).
The artist is highly influenced by the Mediterranean culture and the interplay of light, shades and colour as amplified by the strong, warm Maltese sun. He is also fascinated by the deep blue tones of the Mediterranean sea that surrounds the island. All these influences are evident in the palette the artist employs to convey his visual messages. He describes his work as a continuous narrative of his inner feelings, thoughts and comments, imbued with social as well as cultural influences represented in the form of a creative visual research journey.
