Malcolm Stanley is a poet, visual artist and musician. His work combines words and symbols as tools of expression. He was born in Meriden, CT to a single mother who was also an artist. His mother studied art in college before being hospitalized for metal illness. As a child Malcolm loved being creative, inspired by his mother and the world around him. Malcolm has studied at Columbia College Chicago, Emerson College, and Southern Connecticut State University. (His work explores self expression as well as self-reﬂection) and the goal of his work is to connect with other individuals and be loved on a personal level. On a grander scale he wishes to seek the truth through art, and challenge ideas and preconceived notions that do not serve our world. Some common themes throughout my work are clouds (symbolizing creativity, imagination, innocence, and the idea of afterlife), ﬂowers (symbolizing beauty, vulnerability, and emotional openness), and the notion of outcasts/icons. Mediums range from sculpture, acrylic, collage, photography, airbrush, and marker.
