Ryan Falzon Maltese, b. 1988


Ryan Falzon(b.1988) is a painter and printmaker based between Malta and Berlin. Falzon portrays contemporary lifestyle and scenery in an expressive, brutally honest manner, merging the political with the personal. Over the past few years, Falzon has established a distinctive voice and approach in the local Art scene. Often abrasive and mischievous, his work is known for creating a narrative by bringing together a wide-ranging set of images in a collage-like arrangement, allowing the viewer to wander about visually. From 2013 to 2015, Ryan Falzon was the driving force behind the creation of an open studio project based at the Xarolla Windmill, in Zurrieq, which supported work by emerging artists. In May 2014, Falzon was chosen by Absolut Vodka as an artist for the “Transform Today” worldwide project. His works can be found in public and private collections in Europe and USA.
