One of the most inspirational
expressionists in the North West
known as the Lancashire’s Van
Gough.
His influences are mostly coming
f r o m t h e i m p r e s s i o n i s m .
Malcolm’s paintings show artist
perception of the subject, rather
than realistic interpretation. He is
leaving a personal stamp on many
of his portraits, such as: lost
animal toys. The main influences
of his are: Lucas Freud, John
Piper, Van Gough, Laurie. He finds
them very inspiring, exciting and
liberating.
His subjects of focus are mostly
people he has met in his life.
On this subject he also adds: “I
find it fascinating observing
characters from a distance, and
many times I get the urge to paint
them. Still most of my work is
concentrated on landscapes. I
often try to capture atmospheric
m o m e n t s ”. A l t h o u g h h i s

impressionism he sees himself as
an expressionist.
The theme of his work is based
mostly on painting landscapes,
with a usage of bold lines, bright
colours and big brash strokes in
oil or acrylic. For his line of work
Malcolm also adds:
“In my point of view, a painting
should be a painting, not a
photograph. I aim to express a
mood or a feeling in my work.
People say that even the animals
in my paintings have a characters.
