British street artist David Walker likes to paint around East London. Walker aims to challenge preconceptions about fine art and urban art painting within the gallery confines and the public domain.
- According to his website, Walker’s works are mostly in portraiture.
- He has developed a signature multi-layered style, painting freehand, using only spray paint and without the aid of brushes.
- The results are visually rich portraits that fuse photo realism, abstraction and graffiti art sensibilities with a raw energy that comes from the medium.
Walker’s work is exhibited in the United Kingdom (UK) and internationally and over recent years he has shown work in Europe (Berlin, Lisbon, Paris), Hong Kong, and in the United States (US) in Denver, Los Angeles and New York amongst others and his paintings have been shown alongside the leading figures in the urban contemporary and street art movement.
