Extract from interview with Roderick Camilleri:

Roderick: Do you think that spirituality is relevant to today's art?

Alex: Yes. Spirituality is very important because it is that which makes man complete. It is the peak of humanity and of mankind. To live and understand human beings is to be spiritual. It is an important facet which, like an organ, helps humans to live a better life. I think that it is very important even for me and for my work. It brings me closer to God.
