Malcolm Taylor is based in the Northwest of England and has been painting for over 40 years. He is Vice Present of Manchester Academy of Fine Art, a Member of the Royal Society of British Artists, the Pastel Society, and The Federation of British Artists.
Malcom gathers inspiration from his travels across the UK, primarily from St Ives in Cornwall, continuing the Modern British tradition of abstract landscape painting. Although inspired by a range of places, the artist does not develop his paintings from a fixed image, instead allowing the imagery to develop organically through the process of painting. Malcom works intuitively with a range of materials including acrylics, collage, and pastels, continually working back into his surface, obliterating and re-painting as the work develops. He works towards abstraction in his landscapes, using spontaneous mark making and a finely tuned balance of tone, colour, and composition.
Malcolm’s work has been exhibited in many renowned national exhibitions such as the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Royal Society of British Artists, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, and The Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Art. He exhibits widely across the British Isles and his work is collected internationally.
