Keith Balzan is an artist from Malta.

He offers a varied artistic palette of styles, yet specialises in Cubist and Expressionistic Art. He is self taught and likes to experiment with various media and textures. Keith’s art is a far cry from commercial paintings and forcefully reflects his mood, spontaneity and burning passion for the creative interpretation of everyday life. He graduated in Art after having studied at the University of Malta in 1997 and has taught art to secondary school students ever since. In 2008, he was awarded 2 special mentions in the International Fiat Grande Punto sticker design competition.
