Male Nude Bronze Sculptures

created by artist Malcolm Lidbury


Lidbury first exhibited his male nude bronzes at the Arts Club Penzance in 1997.  Following intense abusive Devon & Cornwall police intimidation & Homophobia from 2004 towards Lidbury creating perfectly lawful & legal male nude paintings, Lidbury following suicide attempts stopped creating art for a duration.


Gradually primarily through encouragement of friends Lidbury returned to sculpting.  In 2011 he approached Cornwall Pride to exhibit Art as a gay artist at the event. 


In 2012 he was invited precisely because of the Cornwall Pride ban to exhibit his male bronzed sculptures at a Holistic Event in Cornwall.  Attended by several hundred persons...& no complaints about his bronzed male nude figurative sculptural art
