Biography

Rupert Cefai is a visual artist, his preferred artistic media are painting, drawing, digital photography and the combination of both traditional (painting and drawing) and ‘new’ media techniques. His work reflects his own enjoyment of all subjects ranging from the human figure through to abstracts and landscapes, showing his fascination with that blend and balance in art that stands on the line between the real and the abstract. His main exhibitions reflect the inspiration he finds in different aspects of life such as everyday human experiences (Effigy, 2005), the built environment (C, 2007), dance (Tektika Tango, 2010) literature (Ġmiel il-Ħrafa, 2011) and music (Spirtupront, 2011). In 2008 he had his first solo exhibition abroad (Narratives in Light), at the Chiesa Degli Artisti in Piazza Del Popolo, Roma which earned him an invitation to participate in the Biennale D’Arte Internazzionale di Roma 2012. In 2012, Rupert held a solo exhibition titled Tiers of Truths at the Framers Gallery in central London and a follow-up exhibition in Malta at Christine X Art Gallery, Sliema, Malta.
