Malcolm T Liepke (born 1953) is an American painter born 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. In turn, his style has inspired others. Liepke and Milt Kobayashi are friends and former roommates with similar styles.
His nickname is ‘Skip’.
