Antoine Farrugia (b.1969) was born and lives in Mqabba, Malta. The artist's primary driving force lies within the limestone medium; its various geological characteristics and pliability providing the momentum to give life to organic, undulating forms. An energy which transcends the material itself, resulting in a personal endeavour to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Such strength reverberates in other materials, whether marble or steel, its power resulting in dynamic and monumental sculptures.
Antoine was introduced to abstraction by Mr Anton Grech an internationally acclaimed artist and lecturer. This has started a new pathway of experimentation for Antoine which has led him to various exhibitions, residencies and being commissioned Public sculptures both on a local and at an international level.
Today Antoine is known for his intriguing forms which derive from his need to use art as a means of visual interaction and questioning that what is not known.
