Born in Hamrun, Malta in 1962, Nathanael Theuma has always nurtured an innate passion for art which he later on cultivated attending evening art classes.
After concluding a bachelor's degree in Sacred Theology in Padova, Italy, he resumed his artistic itinerary attending specific courses at the 'Accademia di belle Arti' in Verona, under the guidance of professor Federico Bellomi, specializing in Renaissance affresco techniques.
His particular attention towards Sacred Art acquired him a mastery in murals and a vast artistic experience while depicting in Churches, monasteries and bishops residences, during his twenty years stay in Italy.
On demand he thought various art courses focusing on oriental art. His major works can be found in Verona, Lamezia Terme, Assisi, Israel and Greece.
Returning to Malta in 2014, he commissioned the murals at the MSSP Oratorju, B'Kara, and later on at the Qawra Parish Church. He also held various solo exhibitions in Malta & Gozo.
Presently, the artist is widening his artistic spectrum through new techniques and themes such as portraiture, figurative-nude and abstracts.
