Tim Malone studied Fine Art in South Africa and subsequently worked as an award-winning advertising art and creative director for almost 40 years. Now, as a fine artist, that experience defines his process. It is a reflection of the way advertising layouts are developed, in which additions or changes made to any part of the work impacts the other pats, and solving one design problem often creates others, until a balanced result is finally achieved.
While Tim’s work is sometimes non-objective, it is always influenced by the social complexities, colours, shapes and textures of the places he’s lived and worked – South Africa, Saudi Arabia and England.
Tim works in acrylics on a variety of grounds, his preference being hot-pressed watercolour paper, which is slightly absorbent, but allows the paint to be moved over the surface with relative ease.
