Biography: Nick WALKER is a painter from the infamous Bristol and London graffiti scene, born in 1969 in Bristol in England (like Banksy). Stencil graffiti and various figurations specialist, he often depicts a 'Vandal' gentleman wearing a bowler hat. Nick Walker quickly became one of the emblematic figures of the Street art UK movement, he has been evolving on the urban art scene for over 20 years. He currently lives and works in Bristol (UK). Nick Walker is one of the most well-known street artists worldwide. As a precursor to the phenomenon of British graffiti, Nick's work became a model for hundreds of emerging artists. His work is constantly changing and always innovative, modern and exciting. Nick relies on the energy and imagery of the graffiti, but he manages to combine the freedom it provides with a perfect mastery of the stencil. The results are very sophisticated and admirable. The methods that he uses retain their strength and their integrity on the traditional medium of canvas. The style and the immediately recognisable humour of Nick Walker allowed him to gain global notoriety. In 2008, his shows were sold-out in Los Angeles and London, where collectors waited more than 24 hours to be among the first to get prints from his latest editions. In 2008, his iconic Moona Lisa sold for over 10 times its estimated value in auction at Bonhams. ‘In 1992, I started to combine stencils with my freehand work, which allowed me to juxtapose almost photographic images with the rawness of conventional graffiti. Stencils have had a strong impact on my work. The interest of the stencils is that they allow me to take a picture from anywhere (dissect a part of life) and re-create it on any surface. I try to add a humorous element or irony to some works and add a bit of relief and light on the walls. Painting is a form of escape for me, and if my work allows the viewer to do the same thing, I am satisfied.’
