Chris Vidal is a contemporary realist artist living in Sydney, Australia. His interest in the arts started at a very young age. He studied classical drawing at the School of Arts in Malta and then pursued a career as a medical scientist and researcher. His passion for the arts, though, persisted. He taught himself how to paint in oil because he was interested in oil painting. He eventually gave up his longtime job to pursue a career as a professional artist. His most recent paintings are a variety of still life and travel-inspired depictions of the Australian landscape. Realist and impressionist masters as well as modern painters have an effect on his work. He creates a constant flow of new works and commissioned paintings, from his home studio in Sydney. His works were published in books and magazines and are found in private and corporate collections in Australia and Internationally. Chris is a professional painter who is passionate about teaching people about painting. He has been instructing students in drawing and painting for the past eight years in several Sydney locales. He places equal emphasis on explaining the technique and the rationale behind how it is carried out. Understanding the reasons behind things enables the student to reason and make choices, two skills necessary for working independently.
