Malcolm Smith



Artist Biography and Background

Bio
Malcolm studied and practised engineering and architecture in London and Cambridge UK, all the while longing to delve into his early passion for painting and the arts.

His journey into the arts began with a North American career in interior design with an array of projects ranging from nightclubs, offices and private homes worldwide.

Clients impressed by the artistic value of his work asked for commissioned art pieces sparking his earlier passions and allowing Malcolm to enter the fascinating world of fine arts.
Malcolm Smith is an artist whose style derives from 1960s romance comics and incorporates bright, bold colours and techniques borrowed from the printing industry. His paintings are dramatic in scope and predominantly feature sultry, flirty and empowered women in a series of situations and environments.

The simplicity of using two parts, the face and hands, allows us to focus more closely on the emotion. To emphasize the strength in which expression is conveyed through facial expression and hand gestures, Smith designates punchy one liners from an array of memorable films to his works.

Artist Statement
Having seen my paintings you won't walk away feeling diminished because you don't get it. There's no room for interpretation, they're in your face ! Art should be enjoyed and even fun, so if you walk away with a smile on your face, then I'll know I've contributed my part.
These paintings are NOT computer or digitally generated but are all hand painted original works derived from my own imagination.
