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 has spent the last seven years developing new art making techniques with honey bees.
Joseph’s latest work will be exhibited this April 18-21 at the Gladstone in Toronto for "Grow Op:Energy".
