Malcolm Jarvis is a contemporary abstract painter, tutor, author, lecturer and workshop instructor. His background is in marketing communications in which, following his art school training, he worked for some 30 years while at the same time developing his painting career. Always interested in teaching, he qualified as a corporate training manager as part of his personal development programme.
Ultimately, he was able to combine his passion for painting with his love of teaching and he now tutors painting classes and delivers regular workshops.
Through his years of painting experience he has learned to loosen-up, let go of anxiety and paint spontaneously. Working in various degrees of abstraction, Malcolm’s paintings are recognisable through his use of bold compositions, pure colours, strong values and expressive brushwork.
He received his formal training at Falmouth School of Art in Cornwall and St Martin’s School of Art in London.
He currently lives and works in South Norfolk. His award-winning work has been seen in juried, invitational, group and solo exhibitions and is in private and corporate collections in the United States, Canada and Europe.
