Malcolm Koch_selfie_150415

Malcolm grew up and was educated in South Australia. He had five years of formal art training prior to entering University. He graduated from UniSA in 1989, and began work in 1990 as a sole trader in the graphic design industry. Malcolm’s views of painting have led him to coining the phrase, Membrane Art — a practice of allowing the surface geometry to play a role in creating distinctive expression and unfolding events.
