Matyou Galea

Matyou Galea (b.1986)is a hyper-media sculptor and researcher working out of the island of Malta. Currently reading for a PhD in Digital Arts at the Department of Digital Arts, Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences within the University of Malta, where his research and practice focus primarily on the integration between software and sculpture. Galea works primarily in sound, video and the idea of social sculpture, locating the act of sculpture as an intervention in society rather than one in matter.

Galea has exhibited extensively in his native Malta, and overseas. His sculptural interventions attempt to dismantle the idea of segregated disciplines within the arts, in order to create hyper-disciplinary, multi-modal, and constantly mutable situations and scenarios. [1]
