Matthew Schembri

Matthew Schembri is rather quiet, but that’s becuase he’d be planning a philosophical riot. He’s always thinking, reading, studying, researching … and chatting to his dog and cat. When not writing or listening to Lady Gaga, he’s lost in the world of visual art. He won the Divergent Thinkers 04 organised by VIVA in 2015, and one year later he went to the Virginia Centre for the Creative Arts as a resident artist. In 2018 he won the award for the first Young Artist of the Year by the Malta Arts Council.
