Teresa Sciberras was born in Ibadan, Nigeria in 1979. She studied at the University of Malta, Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence and Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, Scotland. She teaches at the Institute for the Creative Arts at the Malta College of Arts, Science & Technology and at the University of Malta.

Sciberras’ art, which mainly consists of painting, drawing and collage, is one of superimposed interrogations, namely the parallels that exist between architectonic and mental barriers or delimitations, and thus the spaces we, as a conscious species, inhabit.
