Malcolm Calloway

Malcolm Callaway was born in Plympton, Devon, England and now resides in Chester, Nova Scotia. His creative contributions are many-faceted; Malcolm Callaway’s work as a painter, writer, and producer has each been widely recognized in their own right. Malcolm Callaway has worked extensively as a scenic artist in the television and movie industry. His most noted position was as head scenic artist for the movie “Two if by Sea” where he was called upon to reproduce works of art by Monet, Renoir, Matisse, Gauguin, Hockney, Johns, and Pollack. 

“Fond of outrageous verbal and visual puns, his high-realist images display both a merry wit and a sharp satirical bite. Where many high realists favour the slick and the banal, Callaway serves up shadow material in a glossy package, and lets us squirm.”
