Founder of Sergio Muscat and L’Orrse
Art, Photography and Fashion
Sergio Muscat’s art is one that looks closely – that approaches, associates, combines and recombines. As inspiration for his works, he creates an ever growing digital photographic archive of the world he encounters (everyday objects, artworks, architecture, technology, nature). Sergio’s archive bears testimony to the way he appropriates the world: His camera registers a subject, looks at it closely, distorts it, changes viewpoint or swirls around it. That work is then combined into his final artworks, which themselves are re-introduced into the archive as source for future work. He renders the result into both traditional fine art prints and everyday objects such as silk scarves and architectural elements, reminding us that the world is something every individual constructs from exposure, experience, memories and interests, as well as preconceptions, biases and worldviews.
Apart from, and in complement to his art, Sergio has also had an extensive career within the technology industry, which he has partly put aside to explore his own path, by founding L’Orrse, a fashion brand creating silk scarves and accessories, and recently also moving to Gozo to run Tan-Neputi Bed and Breakfast with his life partner Anna.
