Born in Helsingborg, Sweden and immigrated to Canada with his parents
in 1957, Chris Malmkvist has lived in the Carr’s Landing, Lake Country
area of the Okanagan since 1974.
Malmkvist works as a full time artist in his studio and invites you to
come for a visit, you won’t be disappointed. He is a very eclectic
artist and works in many mediums, often incorporating numerous techniques
into his paintings and etchings. Malmkvist has also developed a reputation
as a stone sculptor.
from every day subjects, local wildlife, orchards, vineyards, and our
beautiful lakes to the motorcycles that suddenly appear with the sunshine,
Malmkvist creates individual works of art that are bursting with detail
and the strength of his facination with the subject matter.
Malmkvist does not reproduce any of his painting, you can be assured that
when you purchase a Chris Malmkvist painting no one else will own a copy
of it. Even as a printmaker, Malmkvist creates original one-of-a-kind
prints in which the artist has personally conceived the image, created
the master plates, and executed the entire printing process.
