Malcolm Teasdale

Malcolm Teasdale

Malcolm Teasdale is a Fine Arts Artist. He was born in 1944 in the Elswick district of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and grew up in Westerhope. He has had a long career of painting spanning almost 40 years. Until recently he has been working for a fine art publisher and has had his work distributed widely, by them, throughout the UK and also through their U.S. outlets.

He specialises in the use of gouache which he loosely applies using a combination of watercolour washes with heavy overlays of concentrated paint applied in a similar way to oils. He paints from a limited palette of raw, earthy colours.

His subjects are mainly old industrial scenes, colliery towns and villages and representations of the social life of workers in the north-east during the1940's and 50's.They are impressionist in style focusing on mood and the atmosphere of the time. They also, as far as possible, are created with some degree of historical accuracy using archival material so that a bus, a poster, a packet of cigarettes, a football strip are authentic and true to that era. But they also retain the sincerity, nostalgia and humour which arise from Malcolm's own personal memories and underlying passion for the past.

During the last three years he has launched the first Newcastle/Gateshead Art Fair for the event's sponsor (H.S.B.C.) and provided a solo exhibition for the opening of the Whitewall Gallery in Grey Street (Newcastle). He featured as one of the principal artists, last winter, at the Biscuit Factory (Newcastle) and has been invited to be their main artist in winter, 2012. He has a series of exhibitions showing during 2011 in Bath and paintings in several other galleries in the Midlands. Later this year a leading London gallery is exhibiting his paintings in Chelsea, the Royal College of Art and the Affordable Art Fair.
