Malcolm pauses, scrutinizes and shrugs. “Everywhere I look I see these fantastic, bright colors. It has been that way since I was a kid.”
This kid started painting at the age of eight. Particularly fascinated with energetic drive and aura of athletes, Malcolm Farley, an ‘all-everything athlete himself’ cut his teeth painting the world’s greatest baseball, tennis, football and hockey stars.
In his formidable years, he traveled the world with his family; gaining cultural perspectives while ‘putting in time’ during his junior high years at 9500 feet in Northern India and other global ports. As a scholarship athlete, he learned to combine his athletic talents and passion as a jazz saxophonist with art to obtain his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Metropolitan State College in Denver . After receiving various collegiate awards, Malcolm chose the path of a commercial artist, becoming a connoisseur of many styles. It was in this period that he experimented with numerous mediums, arriving at the intoxicating palette and imagery that moves the spirit of all who view his work.
