Stunning Figurative Oil Paintings by American Artist Malcolm Liepke

Malcolm T. Liepke is a contemporary American painter known for his loosely brushed yet nimbly executed depictions of figures in interior settings.

Influenced by John Singer Sargent and Diego Velázquez, Liepke employs a limited palette applied wet-into-wet to retain the lush texture and spontaneity of the paint. Culling from drawings of models, photographs, and his imagination, Liepke’s works often evoke bygone eras.

Born in 1953 in Minneapolis, MN, he attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, before dropping out after a year and a half. Moving to New York, Liepke worked as a commercial illustrator for publications such as Time, Forbes, and Newsweek, before growing disappointed with his career and dedicating himself to painting during the mid-1980s.

Liepke currently lives and works in his hometown of Minneapolis, MN. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum and the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C.
