Half A World Passed Me By
A solo show by artist David Walker

 Thursday 16 November 6-8pm

In November, Berlin-based street artist David Walker will unveil a brand new body of work at London’s Lawrence Alkin Gallery.
Featuring several ‘firsts’ for the artist predominately known for his large-scale female portraits, Half A World Passed Me By includes works of both female and male sitters.
The show sees the introduction of brushes, acrylics and new techniques for Walker, whose previous works were made exclusively freehand with spray paint. Commenting on his new approach, Walker commented: “Although the spray paint medium is still present in this new body of work, I feel using new approaches and materials has allowed me a fresh dexterity and an opportunity to mature as a painter.”

 

Half A World Passed Me By also includes figurative works, studies and sketches, and Walker will introduce a series of text-based paintings featuring his own writing.
Half A World Passed Me By will be on display from Friday 3 November – Saturday 25 November at Lawrence Alkin Gallery, 42 New Compton Street London WC2H 8DA
