creating art and protecting the environment
We explore Malcolm’s journey and his work.
I was born in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa in 1968.
As a young child I spent most of my free time on the beach or in the surf. I have always been enchanted by nature and its beauty with a particular passion for the sea and it’s sea life.
I attended Grey High School in Port Elizabeth and it was there that my creative talents and my passion for art started to take shape.
I then went on to Europe and America for a few years exploring different architecture and design. Also getting involved with a lot of wood working.
In 2002 I visited Australia where a good friend taught me magical art of bronze casting. I fell in love with the unique properties of bronze and have derived huge satisfaction in pushing it to the limit of it’s endurance and can now achieve the appearance of weightlessness through sheer strength, resilience and counter weight.
I feel strongly about our environment and the life task I’ve been given to protect it and bring awareness of it.
In 2006 I opened my gallery in Plettenberg Bay, which is still running today, displaying all my work.
I have a studio on a small holding out of town on the bitou river where do all my creating.
