MALCOLM LIEPKE was born in 1953 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, but dropped out after a year and a half. He moved to New York and began studying on his own artists such as John Singer Sargent, Edgar Degas, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Diego Velázquez, James McNeill Whistler and Édouard Vuillard. Liepke and Milt Kobayashi are friends and former roommates with similar styles.

His art has been on the covers of Time, Newsweek, Forbes and Fortune. His artworks are now in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution and the Brooklyn Museum. Liepke's work has been widely shown and exhibited in the Pastel Society of America, the American Watercolor Society, National Academy of Design and the National Arts Club. Leipke's emphasis has been on figurative artworks. His paintings and drawings often focus on intimate moments of sensual pleasure and introspection. Liepke has been selling out his exhibitions since his 1986 show.
