Steven Scicluna (Malta, 1984) is a multi-disciplinary graphic artist currently based in Valencia, Spain. His background includes studies in fine art, graphic design and illustration (UCA, UK).

Steven’s work is focused on bringing out a sense of wonder in its subjects. At the heart of it lies a fascination with the invisible geometry that exists all around and within us, seeking to making it visible. This often takes the form of a visual dialogue between different concepts such as our outer and inner worlds, climate and human culture, architecture and geography, botany and spirituality, etc. 

The exploratory nature of Steven’s work means that his output is not tied to any particular discipline, but makes use of any medium that fits the purpose best. Due to this, he has produced work that spans various disciplines, including sculpture, painting, illustration, product design, murals, graphic design and printmaking. His background in graphic design means that the resulting visuals are often graphic in nature,  rich in iconography, simple shapes, patterns and symbols.

Steven is the creator of the Objekts, a series of hand-crafted, wooden, geometric sculptures that were successfully crowdfunded via Kickstarter in April 2018. His work experience involves leading in-house illustration services within engineering and architecture firm Arup in London, together with experience at several design studios in Malta and Spain. Over the years he has been commissioned by several clients such as Heathrow Airport, Transport for London (TfL), Gatwick Airport, Harrod’s, University of Glasgow, Roca, Mapfre, Consum, Cevisama, Lavernia & Cienfuegos, Henkel, Google and the National Book Council (Malta).
