Nick Malone's paintings are stories of transformation, examining issues of identity, disappearance and change. Malone crosses art forms to create adventures through paintings, drawings, artist's books and podcasts.
He was awarded an MA with Distinction in Contemporary Literature at Queen Mary College and an MA in Fine Art at Central St. Martins. He currently lives and works in London.
Initially a writer, he abandoned his former life to become a full-time artist. His work has been exhibited across the world, from Tokyo to Idaho in the United States, including at the Royal Academy and the Carrousel du Louvre. He has won various important awards, including Arts Council England Awards and Fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts.
'My current work explores issues of identity, dissolution and change through paintings, drawings and story. Some work combines paintings with podcasts and text to enable words and canvas to interact in unforeseen ways, at that interchange of observation and dream where new kinds of art can still be developed.'
