From 1993 to 1998 he attended the Mikiel Anton Vassalli Lyceum in Tal-Ħandaq. After attending the Junior College of the University of Malta, Spiteri obtained his A-levels in Art and Religion in 2000. During this period he evolved his artistic expression based on form and colour.

Academic Artistic Training in Early British Malta

 

Author: Hilary Spiteri

Publisher: Allied Publications

ISBN: 9789990931655

Hilary Spiteri has woven together the history of the rise and decline of the School of Design, set up by Mgr Francesco Saverio Caruana, and discusses it in a meaningful art historical context. The book summarises the research for a Master’s thesis that he defended in the Department of History of Art at the University of Malta. Its great merit is the way in which it broadens and adjusts our perspective of the artistic scenario of early British Malta and to show how, in spite of the decline in official patronage, the University, under the enlightened direction of Mgr Caruana, succeeded in providing Malta with a respectable art academy. This was not an anticlimax but a new beginning and a benchmark development in Maltese Art History.
