He is one of the country’s most influential figurative painters; collectors and connoisseurs will regret missing out on this extraordinary solo exhibition of recent works by Malcolm T. Liepke.
Opening October 22 at the esteemed gallery Arcadia Contemporary is a colorful display of figurative mastery by painter Malcolm T. Liepke. The artist’s first solo show on the West Coast in some 10 years, these new works “explore a contemporary twist on figurative painting, executed in his signature lush style,” the gallery writes.

What is this “Lush,” you ask? You’ll need to see it in person for the full effect. Employing a lighter, cooler palette, “Limbs, garments and faces arrive in striking compositions as a distinctly contemporary atmosphere pervades the works,” the gallery describes. “Stark pastels and bold primaries hang in a unique balance around the artist’s familiar constellation of bodies.”
