Chucky Bartolo of Valherovlog fame talks art in Malta exclusively to us! Chucky Bartolo is the ultimate package when it comes to vlogging: he’s hilarious, he’s honest, he’s timely, and he always points out his mane underneath the hat/cap he uses to cover it – not in this video, obviously, although if you look closely he’s wearing a hat here too!

Design and craftsmanship: an introduction to House of Fenech Graduating is important, but like many other things in life, it’s the journey that matters, not the destination. Throughout my three years at university my peers and I engaged in many-a-project, and although this might sound somewhat dramatic, they often pushed us to the limits of our abilities and visions.
