About the artist

Pietru Farrugia (b. 1986, Malta) is a multidisciplinary artist and researcher from the Mediterranean. Gathering inspiration from textual, spiritual, and therapeutic sources, his method includes drawing, painting, and the manipulation of unconventional materials. In particular, Pietru explores the possibilities, and pushes the limits, of paper. Pietru’s academic journey reflects these underlying interests, to discover the collapse of opposites and to capture the wicked beauty of queer contradictions. The resulting images serve as a personal diary of both criticism and celebration.
