Who is David Walker ?

Working in portraiture, painting freehand, using only spray paint and without the aid of brushes David has developed a signature multi-layered style.

Incorporating both sophisticated and dumb mark making he creates countless scrawled lines and abstract areas that weave through clashing colours, translucent drips and decaying letterforms, the results are visually rich portraits that fuse photo realism, abstraction and graffiti art sensibilities with a raw energy that comes from the medium.

His work is Exhibited in the UK and Internationally and aims to challenge preconceptions about fine art and urban art painting within the gallery confines and the public domain.

Banksy’s Goddess disappeared !

Have you heard that the valuable mural of a Greek goddess Niobé done by the British Street Art legend Banksy in Gaza was sold to a local artist for less than $200?

The piece, titled “Bomb Damage,” was drawn on a door which was the last remaining part of a house in northern Gaza.

Who is NemO’s ?

The artist NemO’s published a photograph on his website. It is a picture of his work done on a wall in Milano, Italy.

“I lived in Milan in Italy for a while and because I come from a small city surrounded by countryside this big city seemed like a desert of cement to me, the skyline was barely visible!

Every huge metropolis seems like a stain of oil that looks still but is slowly expanding and gulping everything down!

I felt the necessity to show and tell the story of the expanding city that feeds on nature and expels cement waste!”
– NemO’s
