Philip Maltman was born in Ayrshire, Scotland in 1950, moving to Swinging London in the sixties where he attended Hornsey College of Art and finished his studies at Ravensbourne College of Art.
Philip Maltman's aim is to dictate the contents of a painting through manually working the paint, rarely allowing the paint to work too much by itself through technical experiment or chemical treatment, which can produce startling yet ultimately vacuous results. Accidents may see paint frequently “doing its own thing” and this is considered and modified where necessary. The painting is then complemented by drawing and handwritten text.
"That is the thing with painting, it is a struggle with the self and if the self is prone to rebel or argue then the results can be disturbingly interesting and never concluded in conventional acceptance."
