Malone is a visual and literary artist whose career spans three decades. He holds degrees from the University of Houston and The University of Arizona (MFA), and has worked as a newspaper journalist, a university instructor in English literature and writing, a literary critic and editor, and a writer of fiction and poetry. He is the author of three award-winning books of fiction. Since the 90s, however, he has focused his attention on painting pictures, mostly abstract but with forays into representational and figurative art. Over the years, his paintings have appeared in a number of galleries and exhibitions, as well as publications on both sides of the Atlantic. Among his many honors are an NEA Fellowship, and, last year, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the publication Who's Who in America. In 2017, Malone's home and studio, in the coastal town of Rockport, TX, were destroyed by Hurricane Harvey. He has since rebuilt, returning to work early last year and devoting himself largely to portraying the physical and emotional violence inflicted on the place and the people who survived the storm at Ground Zero. Also in 2019, Malone began a collaboration with a British e-commerce entrepreneur to create a line of fashion accessories and wall prints depicting several of his artworks. Called beARTified.com, the site launches later this year.
