Lisa Malyon is a Bristol-based artist celebrating the built environment. Iconic landmarks in Bristol, London and New York have all been drawn by Lisa in her inimitable style. Detail is Lisa’s watchword. Certain sections of her drawings are treated to highly-detailed penwork with the rest deliberately left ‘unfinished’ thereby inviting the viewer to look closer and fill in the gaps with their minds’ eye.
In her two-dimensional artwork Lisa incorporates a collage element with the use of Chinese Joss Paper - spirit money to venerate those departed - adding colour, texture and a unique design element.
Lamp shades also get the ‘Lisa’ treatment. Drawing directly onto a cotton drum lamp shade Lisa can draw any structure, bridge, pier or building; the drum-shape lending itself perfectly to panoramic views of a city or landscape, for example.
Clifton Suspension Bridge, Clevedon Pier, the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield, St Paul’s Cathedral and even the Orient Express locomotive have all been immortalised on a lampshade.
Lisa Malyon regularly exhibits her artwork widely across Bristol including St George’s Crypt Gallery, Beachcroft Solicitors' 16-meter window and the restaurant at Harvey Nichol’s
Lisa has worked on various commissions for commercial and private customers and welcomes future collaborations with architects, designers, interior stylists or decorators.
