Malcolm Cheape

Malcolm Cheape lives and works in Perthshire where he has worked as an artist since completing a BA Honours and Postgraduate in Painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee in 1987.

His primary subject matter is the contemporary and historical world of commercial, industrial and naval shipping. This includes decommissioned fishing boats, private yachts, modern day trawlers, tall ships and battle ships.

Scotland’s east and west coast give him the backdrop from which he tries to capture the grace and character of commercial water-bound vessels. Through researching the archives of Britain’s maritime museums, and investigating the history and design of boats gone by, his work attempts to mirror both past and present.
