Richard Walker is a successful British artist working in several media, including painting, printmaking, writing and music.

He studied at three London colleges in the 70s: Kingston, Camberwell and Chelsea and then lectured in printmaking and drawing for several years.

 

His early inspiration was Pop art and after many visits to the USA he became known for his dramatic cityscapes. In recent years he has tackled more diverse subjects such as the London 7/7 bombings, Obama's election victory and a modern day interpretation of Alice in Wonderland.

 

His current work is more playful, lyrical and abstracted, but there is always an underlying  darker side. He is also involved in making music: in 2014, he produced an album working with other musicians, made entirely over the internet.

 

Another röle is that of an architectural tour creator for the 20th Century Society, most recently he has led a group of 20 around Miami

 

Walker has exhibited internationally and his work is in many public and private collections. His studio is in Bloomsbury, London.

 

 

 

Walker about his exhibition at Gabriel Fine Art: "This show collects together several themes in my work. The layout of the gallery spaces dictate the scale and scope of the different periods and subjects.

 

One room will be called THIS ENGLAND, THAT ENGLAND and will be cityscapes of London, and will also include pieces from my 7/7 bombings series and a modern reinterpretation of Alice in Wonderland.

 

Another room will be called ALL GONE TO LOOK FOR AMERICA which will show a major 30-section work  'America is Waiting'  which is 'a road movie' about Obama's journey to be president. There will also be some large cityscapes.

 

The final room, called A MILLION UNIVERSES is new work from this last year. There will be a series of small abstracts and a set of surreal 'postcards'  which are enlarged, collaged photo pieces."
