David Walker I Lawrence Alkin Gallery

42 New Compton St,
London

In November, Berlin-based street artist David Walker will unveil a brand new body of work at London’s Lawrence Alkin Gallery.

Half A World Passed Me will feature a number of ‘firsts’, including male sitters, figurative studies, text-based works, collaborations with three other artists and the use of brushes. David is famously recognised for not using brushes in his freehand spray paint works which are often mistaken for oil paintings, so this is an interesting development for the artist.

It’s David’s first UK show in over three years, as he’s since been busy painting large-scale murals on streets in France, Denmark, Belgium and New York. He also recently created pieces for the Street Art Museum in Amsterdam and the just-opened Urban Nation Museum for urban contemporary art in Berlin.
