About David Walker

David Walker’s detailed portraits are covered with rainbow-colored scribbles. Using only spray paint and freehand drawing, Walker builds countless layers of color to create bold depictions of his subjects. Each painting captures the emotions of the sitter, often moments of introspection and calm. Whether painted on a wall, the side of a building, a boat, or on canvas, each face carries an expressive individuality. Walker defies the conventions of fine art and street art by combining the two styles into an abstracted photorealism that freely traverses artistic categories.

British, b. 1976, London, United Kingdom
