Matt Micallef Art

Hey! So... I was born in Germany in the summer of 82, and brought back to Malta within the year. In my early years growing up, drawing cars, painting and building creations out of Meccano and Lego were synonymous with me. Something about forms, colours and depth just had my complete attention especially with vehicles. I would always carry a little drawing pad and some pens, knowing that if I was ever bored or disinterested with my surroundings, I could always dive into my imagination. Fast forward a few years, and having completed my secondary education, I was eagerly looking forward to focus on my art and design education, which is where I spent four of the most rewarding years of my education at the Art and Design Institute. By this time, I had been accustomed to using various mediums in my art, but had never approached acrylics. Around 2004, I was given my first art commission where I decided to try this medium. With reasonable success and fulfillment, I continue to use this as my main medium, developing various styles and techniques. I have since had one collective and two solo exhibits and was recently featured in Volume 1 of The Artists’ Directory published this year (2017) by indulge.com.mt . My most recent works feature abstracts, classic vehicles and typical local scenery.

Support Draw to Drive

Dear friends,

when we started this journey, our only goal was to build a small community of octane art lovers. Your passion made Draw to Drive community to grow beyond our expectations. Draw to Drive is a project developed, maintained, and financed by a team of three co-founders. With the constant growth of the community, our operating costs grew as well, together with the time needed for maintaining the current platform. Next to that, new features had to take a back seat.

We came to a point when we have to ask for your support to develop new features and keep the platform running. We have opened a Patreon page if you want, you can now support us to build a better platform and get a few perks in return.
