Nick Walker, a formative member of the graffiti art movement in 1980s Bristol, England, is best known for merging freehand work with stencilled imagery. As a forerunner of this technique, he believes that the combination allows him to “juxtapose almost photographic imagery with the rawness which evolved from conventional graffiti styles.” Walker’s signature “vandal” figure, an alter-ego who consistently appears in a black suit and bowler hat, is representative of the artist’s desire to imbue his detailed pieces with irony and humor. In addition to traditional street art, Walker famously recreated the graffitied streets of New York for Stanley Kubrick’s 1999 film, Eyes Wide Shut.
