Malachi Aird started his professional career in the arts in the late 80’s completing an apprenticeship in Special Effects for film and television. He then went on to become a Madonnaro (Renaissance old Master Reproduction, Street Artist) and travelled Australia and Europe. It was during this period that he took on large numbers of private and commercial commissions, predominantly renaissance reproduction murals and portraiture. Malachi eventually worked for The Sydney Opera House as a set painter, and then moved to Europe to continue working as an artist, having his first public gallery exhibition at Galerie Pied de Biche in Rue St. Lazar, Paris.
During his two years in Europe Malachi was also fortunate enough to spend some time working with The Royal Academy while living in London, a seminal point in his personal development as an artist.
Now residing in Cairns, Malachi Aird has a studio at Crate 59 and continues to exhibit locally and nationally in group exhibitions throughout the year.
