Beach Walk 234 OTR – Malcolm Breaks the Mold

Malcolm Alexander turns dyslexia into a thriving art career.

For those of you who are new here, I usually walk the beach with my dog Lexi in Hawai’i. But I am on the road traveling for my job, so you get to come along with me! I like to think of Beach Walks as much as an attitude as a place. A place where we explore the edges of the known world, and think differently.

Malcolm Alexander is a Santa Fe artist, with seemingly endless fascinating stories. A dyslexic child of an auto engineer father, he struggled to keep up with school and family expectations. But he is persistent and creative! His early work was largely in tribute to both athletes and the workers who built much of America – farm workers, oil field workers, and miners. In the mid-80’s he made a dramatic switch from representational sculpture to abstract art.

He speaks to may groups on dyslexia and continues to create large bronze sculptures that can be seen at Ventana Gallery in Santa Fe, NM.
