What you'll do
Our art studio is in Benimaclet, a former village which is now part of Valencia. I will be taking you around this unique neighbourhood, and together we'll get a feel for the local architecture and spirit of the place by observing and sketching along the way. If we're lucky enough, we might even have some time to pop into the local bakery to buy some village treats to munch on while we're creating our postcards. Back at the studio, I'll guide you through the process of linocut printing, form our ideas better and finally get to stamp our very own Valencian-inspired postcards.
I'm a visual artist with a background in graphic design, illustration and printmaking. Originally from Malta and having studied illustration in the UK, I am now based in Valencia where I currently share an art studio with 5 other artists. I have held several exhibitions over the past 15 years, including at the 2016 edition of the Valencia Design Week where I also had the chance of hosting some printmaking workshops. As an artist, my subject matter is defined by exploring similarities between our inner and outer worlds, as defined by the cultures, architectures, climates and natural forms that surround us collectively. These are some of the themes that we'll be exploring during my Airbnb Experience.

We'll be in Benimaclet, a former village now part of Valencia which still retains a certain laid-back charm. A hotspot for the arts, Benimaclet is also home to our studio which I share with 5 other artists and where we'll be conducting our linocut printing workshop.
