Silvio John Camilleri started attending the Malta Govt. School of Art in the late 1990s and following a break of some years while reading for a doctoral degree in finance, he resumed classes at the Malta Society of Arts in 2007.  He studied human figure drawing under Eman Grima, Jesmond Vassallo and Dione Borg, printing techniques with Lino Borg, and followed other courses under the direction of Noel Azzopardi, Roderick Camilleri, Joseph L. Mallia, Joseph Mark Micallef, and Tony Sciberras.  In his art, Silvio John is particularly keen on re-interpreting his renditions of any particular subject since he finds that when doing this, the emphasis shifts on the inquisitive artistic process rather than on the subject itself.  The artist’s first solo exhibition entitled ‘Ħarbaħolma – Images of a Wistful Escape’ was held in 2020 under the curatorship of Dr. Christian Attard.  The artist also participated in various collective initiatives.
