Chris Vidal is a contemporary realist artist who lives and works in Sydney, Australia. His interest in arts started from very young. At the age of 13 he attended and studied classical drawing at the School of Arts, Palazzo de LaSalle, Valletta, Malta. His initial work was inspired by artists from the Renaissance and Baroque eras such as Caravaggio and Rembrandt. Life took Chris in a different direction and he pursued a career as a medical scientist and researcher, graduated with a doctorate degree and working for various government, universities and private institutions in Malta and Australia. His interest in the art of painting remained alive along the years and although time was limited he was trying to find the opportunity to experiment with various media especially acrylics. His interest and curiosity in oil painting pushed him to go and buy a simple set of oil paints and a book to teach himself how to paint in oils. After years of struggle he decided to take painting seriously and to teach himself how to paint in full colour. From that time onward he never looked back and the regular practice of the art improved his skills dramatically. After a number of years he was ready to take the decision to leave his life long career in science to become a professional artist. His current body of work mostly consists of various representations of the Australian landscape inspired by places where he visits. His style of work is influenced by the American landscape painters o
