Paul Scerri is an artist of a few words. He excels in creating intrigue, and in depicting stereotypical characters, whilst delicately adding notions of injustice and narcissism. His sculptures are free to individual interpretations. Paul Scerri clearly describes his work by stating “the character of my work has effectively made a full circle since, from the figurative, I moved to abstract ceramic creation and now have now turned back to figurative work”.

His career exceeds more than thirty years, starting an artistic journey way back in the 1970s. Paul was lucky enough to embark on professional training under the eminent tutorship of Esprit Barthet. He then successfully landed a number of scholarships in Italy, namely at the Accademia Belle Arti Pietro Vanucci of Perugia.

This was followed by studies at the Istituto Statale D’Arte G. Ballardini in Faenza. This was the juncture where he became enraptured by the clay medium. He nourished his knowledge in design and decoration of ceramic tiles by completing his studies in Imola. Impressively, Paul Scerri was awarded first prize in Ceramics at the ‘1° Concorso Avis’ which was held in Faenza. This encapsulated his Italian experience. He returned to Malta to teach at the Art and Design Centre in Valletta.

Today, while still producing beautiful sculptures, Paul also works for one of the leading company that relates with marble and stone. Moreover, he is also a part-time lecturer in ceramics at the University of Malta within the Faculty of Education.
