Award winning artist David Walker works in both oil paints and watercolours. Before concentrating on illustration and fine art painting David trained and practiced as an architect. As a painter, therefore, David’s work is primarily concerned with the built environment. The play of light and atmosphere on the manmade forms of our cities.
David is a three times winner of the Frank Herring award at both the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, as well as a recipient of the Rowland Hilder award and ‘The Artist’ magazine award.
‘’The works in this exhibition are concerned with my ongoing fascination with the built environment and in particular, London, it’s atmospheres, moods and forms. The paintings aim to express a kind of curious beauty of the everyday, and record glimpses as almost abstract compositions of colour, light and form.”
