Joseph Farrugia grew up on a farm near Terra Cotta, Canada. In 2003 he graduated from NSCAD University (BFA: Interdisciplinary) and in 2005 from the University of Canterbury (Dip. Teaching: Art/History). Joseph taught art at Te Awamutu College, New Zealand and learned about the local apiculture. In 2008 Joseph traveled and taught around the world, exploring various regions both artistically and agriculturally. In 2011, he took these experiences and returned to Canada to set up his art studio and apiary in Mono, Ontario, where he has spent the last eight years developing new art making techniques with honey bees and other pollinators. Joseph’s latest work was exhibited this April at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto, Canada (gladstonehotel.com/Grow-Op) and featured in the Mar/April edition of Murze Magazine, London, UK (https://www.murze.org/store/Murze-Issue-Five-Printed-Edition-Climate-Art-p135021053). In February-March 2020, Farrugia's work will be exhibited at Cedar Ridge Gallery.
