Collage artist Malcolm Tillis

An acclaimed artist will give a talk about his work on the final day of his last ever art exhibition.

Malcolm Tillis, whose work has been praised by the former curator at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, will talk about his distinctive collages on the last night of his exhibition in Shrewsbury on September 28.

His talk, at the pop-up gallery in Shoplatch, starts at 7.45pm. It will be followed by an auction of any of his works which have not been sold by the end of the exhibition.

Malcolm, who is 90, began his career as a viola player with the world-renowned Halle orchestra in Manchester. But his best-selling book about life as a professional musician caused a national controversy, and he left the country to escape the furore. During his time living in Italy, Ibiza and India he began working as an artist.

Malcolm, who now lives in Shrewsbury, is donating at least 20 per cent of proceeds from the sale of his art work to Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin.
