Martin Maloney

Goldsmiths CollegeĀ graduate Martin Maloney has been crucial to the rise over the past few years of a new generation in British art. His highly-coloured, expressive paintings have reintroduced a sense of the romantic into contemporary art. Maloney’s work has been shown in such landmark exhibitions as Sensation at London’s Royal Academy, New Neurotic Realism at the Saatchi Gallery, and Die Young Stay Pretty – which he also curated – at London’s ICA. Martin Maloney has also contributed to major international art magazines – such as Artforum and Flash Art – and even, in the mid 1990s, ran his own gallery, Lost in Space, from his South London flat.
