48cm x 66cm
Private collection

Malcolm Cheape was born in 1964. He is a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee.

Malcolm Cheape’s primary subject matter is the contemporary and historical world of commercial, industrial and naval shipping. The Scottish east and west coast gives Malcolm the ideal background from which to capture the grace and character of commercial water-bound vessels. He is avid natural historian and through researching the archives of the British maritime museums, and investigating the history and design of boats gone by, Cheape’s art work attempts to mirror both past and present. 

Malcolm Cheap works primarily in ink and acrylic. His clever usage of collage – including Scottish poetry, financial records, engineering drawings, hydrological charts, and mythological iconography – makes his paintings truly unique. Relying on tonal effect, a limited range of colours and clever use of collage, his paintings are strikingly distinctive capturing the grace and beauty of the old sailing ships, the vigour and power of warships and the special charm of fishing boats working the Scottish waters.

In addition to Red Rag Art Gallery Malcolm Cheape modern art work has been exhibited at other leading Scottish Art Galleries. His work is in many public collections including the City Art Centre in Edinburgh, the Perth Art Gallery, the McLean Collection in the Greennock Art Gallery, and in many private art collections around the world. More on Malcolm Cheape

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
