For the last two decades world renowned artist, Malcolm Farley, has shared the stage with
the biggest names in the music industry.
From capturing Sting and the Police Reunion “Live” at the 2007 Grammy Celebration, painting pop
star Seal on a floating stage in Las Vegas, to all out interactive “jams” with the legendary
Carlos Santana, a swirl of Malcolm’s brush has created some of the most definitive
music images in history.
Whether “front and center” with a symphony in an Olympic tribute to the athletes, or lurking in
the shadows of a smoke filled jazz club with BB King, Malcolm creates that added element
to completely fulfill the senses.
A former jazz saxophonist himself, Malcolm is not only knowledgeable, but his passion for
music “oozes” from his soul through his art. His colorful canvases of music icons and festivals
hang in some of the most prestigious collections world wide. His inherent ability to bring
the musicians’ true essence to life through his gestural swashes of color, speak to the viewer
at a seemingly subconscious level.
As icon Stevie Wonder relayed backstage after collaborating with Malcolm at a Los Angeles fund raiser,
“His color is a language itself, speaking to all people at a soul level.”
His mastery of paint and canvas allows Malcolm to create that “defining moment”, simultaneously
echoing the personality of the musicians he has painted.
Performing onstage in front of thousands, creating in the intimate settings of a corporate “gig”, or
painting in his studio, music is an important motivational element to Malcolm’s work.
Image after image, blank canvases are transformed for eternity, as is the consciousness
of all who witness this Modern day master at work.
