Nick Walker Artist Biography
Nick Walker is one of Britiain's graffiti pioneers and has been working out of Bristol for over twenty years. Nick's work employs a good deal of wry humour, treating iconic figures with a refreshing irreverence such as his two images of the "Mona Lisa" and his recent print of the Houses of Parliament. He has been influenced by films like Blade Runner and the visions of 2000AD into developing his own dystopian science fiction imagery. He was originally inspired by seeing NYC graffiti pioneer Dondi and in his early street-spraying days used the tag Ego. Nick was also one of the first people to use stencils in his work. His style has attracted widespread attention and he has created spraypaint portraits of Krust, Roni Size and Carl Cox as well as a comic strip for Roni Size's Dope Dragon label. He has also been involved with the movie industry, painting sets for the director Stanley Kubrick and for the motion picture of Judge Dredd.
