Biography
­It would be easy to interpret the work of Martin Maloney as simplistic observations of the world. In fact, there is nothing simple about them. His wild gestural brushstrokes, bold use of colour, and semi-abstract figures, are not incidental to his art. Indeed, they are intentional techniques employed by the artist to comment on his own social observations of urban life, whilst at the same time making surprising references to art historical conventions.

As simple as a quick kiss in a car on a busy junction, the genre-scenes by Martin Maloney depicts everyday life with charming naivety. Women from the neighbourhood crossing paths in a local supermarket give a glimpse into trivial urban living; and once behind the curtains of suburbia, the artist exposes a more bohemian side to contemporary life. Maloney delivers with sincerity and innocence, regardless of subject matter. The stories told on canvas - and his talent for self-staging - placed the artist on a fast track to art world fame in the late-nineties, with several high-profile solo shows and an inclusion in the legendary exhibition ‘Sensation’ at the Royal Academy of Arts. One of only a few works on paper, Love Bug from 2001 is a delightful portrayal of urban residents caught up in modern-day life.
