    About The Work

    Malcolm Liepke is an elusive figure that has managed to stay out of the spotlight since the mid-1980s despite dominating critical discussions of contemporary art. Mostly autodidact, the Minneapolis-born and based artist has navigated the art world in an under-the-radar quest for identity, borrowing from his predecessors to synthesize completely new works. Liepke’s work transports viewers to a bygone era of late-night haunts, couples lingering in smoky rooms, and intimate private moments.

    In the early 2000s, Liepke turned to master printmaker—and fellow Minnesotan—Steven M. Andersen to produce lithographs of some of his most evocative and heart-rending paintings. Andersen lent his years of experience in producing limited edition prints with some of the most influential American artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to create figurative pieces of great expressive depth and brilliant technical execution.
