Malt is a self taught artist, working and living in Metro Detroit. Working in both aerosol and acrylic painting techniques, Malt explores themes of nature across a broad body of work. From large scale murals and installations to intimate studio work, Malt focuses on the juxtapositions posed by nature – life/death, growth/decay, strength/weakness.
Growing up in Metro Detroit, Malt’s career as an artist began with his passion for skateboarding, graffiti and music. Influenced by the bold lines of graffiti and skateboard graphics, Malt reimagines natural landscapes and the characters that inhabit them, building from psychedelic backdrops to create other-worldly scenes.
