Nick Walker

Nick Walker is probably one of the most prolific street artists in the world today. He emerged from the infamous Bristol graffiti scene of the early 1980’s and has continued to evolve his style as a relevent force in the art world.  His work tends to combine freehand and stencil work with a slight play on words.

He very often uses a character to stage his ideas. The figure, named “Mr Vandal”, is good-looking, phlegmatic, and highly british. The character breaks out the image usually given to graffiti activists. Irony and derision are two terms appropriate to Nick Walker’s approach.

“I try to add an element of humour or irony to some paintings to add a little light relief to the walls. Painting is a form of escapism for me and if my work allows the spectator to do the same thing, then I’ve achieved more than I set out to do.” Nick Walker
