Kyp Malone is a figurative painter working primarily with watercolor on paper. His paintings explore mythic, spiritual and psychedelic themes.
The work is often more graphic than the medium of watercolor implies as it is reaching roughly towards inspirations of Mohdal and classical Indian painting traditions.
While not overtly political, the paintings are populated by black and brown peoples often in utopic/edenic environments. "I'm working towards something like a black fantastic. The conspicuous absence of people of color, or worse, their being relegated to caricature or background in the fantasy side of the western imagination troubled me. So I started painting what I wanted to see."
Malone is a resident of NYC where he works as a musician and video director.
