British painter Mali Morris’s career stretches back over 50 years. Her experiments with colour, layering, and pictorial space have made her one of the most intriguing abstract painters in the UK today. She was elected a Royal Academician in 2010 and shows regularly in the Summer Exhibitions there.

Mali Morris was born in North Wales 1945 and studied Fine Art at the Universities of Newcastle upon Tyne and Reading during the 1960s. She has been showing nationally and internationally since her first major exhibitions at the Serpentine Summer Show 3, London, 1977 and the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, 1979. Since then she has held over 40 solo shows, and has been included in numerous group shows, at the Barbican, Hayward Gallery, Serpentine Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, Walker Art Gallery Liverpool, Whitworth Gallery Manchester, Museum of Wales Cardiff, as well as a number overseas. She designed the flags that hung over Bond Street during the Summer of 2022.

Her most recent solo shows were Three Ghosts at Hales New York in 2022, and Calling, at the Ikon, Birmingham, in 2023. Forthcoming in September 2024 is Returning, at the Hatton Gallery, Newcastle. Mali Morris is included in public and private collections worldwide. She appeared on Private Passions, Radio 3, in November 2023, now on BBC iPlayer. The monograph Mali Morris: Painting, with a text by Sam Cornish, preface bu Mel Gooding, and writings by the artist, is published by RA. She lives and works in London.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
