His work caught our attention. Thomas Scerri is a class on his own. The pictures presented here shows this artist’s capability to create art and design with passion.
Scerri was born to a ceramist; making him exposed to art since a very young age. He studied Mechanical Engineering at MCAST from where he obtained a Higher National Diploma. Then he returned to art and design. In fact he obtained a Diploma in Design Foundation Studies in 2014, a Bachelor of Arts in Digital Arts in 2017 and a Master of Arts in Digital Arts in 2019 at University of Malta.
Thomas experimented with different materials and now, he is focusing more on scultpure and lens-based media. His first exhibition was entitled ‘Deceit’ which took place at VGB Art in Valletta in September 2016. It consisted of a series of nude paintings.
His second exhibition named ‘Self’, followed and it formed part of his thesis for the BFA in Digital Arts course. However, those were not the only two exhibitions in which his works where exhibited.

“I am always interested in looking beyond, visualising the invisible and uncovering the hidden. Abstract concepts are brought into the physical world, taking organic shapes – creating contrast between the manmade and the natural. I let the material dictate the form, letting the unconscious drive the work.” – Thomas Scerri.
From wirtmalta.mt, we would like to congratulate Thomas whilst wishing him the best for his bright future. You make us proud.
