Greg Mallyon


In April my work was taken to the Singapore Affordable Art Fair by Manyung Gallery group . During the fair Warner Bros selected my paintings for filming on the Kuala Lumpur set of "Crazy Rich Asians " based on the best selling novel by Kevin Kwan . (My work is apparently what billionaire Chinese like to hang in their lavish penthouses ) The paintings will now be featured in the November Singapore AAF.


In May I flew to Hong Kong for the opening of the Hong Kong Affordable Art Fair where I enjoyed strong sales and the excitement of this fantastic event which received extensive international media coverage  .I am currently negotiating  with a Hong Kong gallery  re future representation and will return again for the art fair in May 2018.From Hong Kong i travelled to CAP studio in Thailand to take up a 3 week artist residency .Whilst there i produced  2 large etchings and a series of small monoprints and paintings on hand made Thai paper .


Meanwhile back in Australia I have been preparing for an ongoing project which will involve the painting of large scale murals on the facade of luxury apartments in Melbourne .This project is expected to commence in 2018 and conclude in late 2019 .
