Love Bug by Martin Maloney

Martin Maloney Biography

Martin Maloney has been crucial to the recent rise of an emerging Young British Art generation. His expressive and colourful paintings have reintroduced a sense of the romantic into contemporary art: here, through his wonderfully garish illuminated sculptures. Maloney's work has been shown in landmark exhibitions such as Sensation at London's Royal Academy (alongside fellow Goldsmiths graduate and Opus featured artist Peter Davies), New Neurotic Realism at the Saatchi Gallery, and Die Young Stay Pretty - which he also curated - at London's ICA.

Martin Maloney has also contributed to major international art magazines - such as Artforum and Flash Art - and even, in the mid 90s, ran his own gallery, Lost in Space, from his South London flat.
