RyanFalzon(b.1988) is a painter andprintmaker basedbetweenMalta and Berlin.Falzonportrayscontemporarylifestyle and scenery in an expressive, brutallyhonest manner,merging the political with the personal. Overthe past few years, Falzon has established a distinctive voice andapproach in the local Art scene. Often abrasive and mischievous, hiswork is known for creating a narrative by bringing together awide-ranging set of images in a collage-like arrangement, allowingthe viewer to wander about visually.


From2013 to 2015, Ryan Falzon was the driving force behind the creationof an open studio project based at the Xarolla Windmill, in Zurrieq,which supported work by emerging artists. In May 2014, Falzon waschosen by Absolut Vodka as an artist for the “Transform Today”worldwide project. Falzon has also had his writings published in “L”and“Taħziz 1”, both projects being platforms for emergentauthors. He currently teaches Visual Art at St. Edward’s College,Malta.



Hisworks can be found in public and private collections in Malta,Germany and England.
