About Malcolm

Malcolm is a Fremantle based artist whose main medium is acrylic on canvas.

He describes the style of his paintings as “a form of realism that is paired back by a level of graphic art technique that simplifies the image to assist the observer to see the essence of the work”. 

His motivation is to share his perspective of the everyday scenes and objects in the urban environment.  “I take time to deeply scrutinize a subject as I paint.  I would like the viewer to spend a little time to also experience the form, colour and occasional humour in what I have rendered”

There is a celebratory element to Malcolm’s work - a celebration of human endeavour in the built environment and sometimes of the effort to decorate and humanise an environment that may otherwise be visually harsh.

Having lived in or around Fremantle for nearly four decades it is no surprise that most of the topics for his work are the scenes with which he is familiar in the local town and port.
