Kevin Attard Filigree Artist

Kevin Attard utilises the Maltese traditional methods to experiment in the creation of innovative designs, shapes and sizes which apart from being most modern and futuristic, they surprise the visitor for their originality. He creates and designs authentic, contemporary pieces, which add a touch of innovation to the craft and create a keen, fresh interest for the generation of today. Kevin uses the traditional technique of filigree making but he gives it his own unique twist. Instead of complying with the traditional filigree designs, he creates more unusual ones and makes sure to find a balance between being daring and innovative and creating something that the general public is interested in and appreciates. This project will provide a new artistic challenge for Kevin since it involves bringing a pre-existing medium and presenting it and transforming it in an innovative manner.

ARTWORK: A team icon surrounded by various marketing tools.
