Mario Agius (b.1956) has manifested a fond inclination to sculpture and design from his early years. He began his artistic studies under the late Mons. Michelangelo Apap (1915-2006) and furthered his studies in wood sculpture under the famous Maltese artist the late Anton Agius (1933-2008). Juginder Lamba, a sculptor of international repute described Mario's works as if they “oozed with humanity and the human condition in a truly universal sense”.
The artist has a number of sculptures in private collections both locally and abroad including in London and Switzerland. His finest wood sculptures adorn churches all around the Maltese islands. In 1989 he followed a course of studies in sculpture in the UK at the White Knight Gallery under the tuition of international artist Ian Norbury.
