Nick Walker - BiographyBorn in 1969, Nick Walker is one of UK’s leading artists creating beautiful freehand work with the help of stencils. He worked in the field of advertising and also as an illustrator and tried his hands on film set designing as well. He emerged from the infamous and ground-breaking Bristol art and graffiti scene of the early 1980s.

As a forerunner of the British graffiti phenomenon Nick's work became a blueprint for hundreds of burgeoning artists. His work has constantly evolved and always remains innovative, modern and thought-provoking earning him the notoriety of one of the UK's most wanted artists.

It was after the continuous destruction of his illegal work that Nick transcended his urban surroundings and changed his angle of attack to one focused on the establishment and art world. His distinctive style adapted effortlessly from the walls of Bristol to canvases on gallery walls.

His work still draws on the energy and imagery of graffiti but he succeeds in combining the freedom the spray can brings with very controlled and intricate stencilling. The results are highly sophisticated and incredibly desirable. His work has been embraced by the mass media including the record, advertising and film industries. With commissions as prestigious as the major motion pictures Judge Dredd and Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut.

Nick Walker’s recent work had been displayed in exhibitions like "Two Floors", Soho (London), and a solo exhibition sponsored by Absolute Vodka, at Goodge Place, London. His work had been selected by the V&A for producing his designs in a postcard format for sale in the museum shop.

Some of his works like Moona Lisa, THE CANS and BORN2BOMB are partly hand-sprayed and partly hand-printed. They are all unique and are signed and numbered.
