John Walker

John Walker
Illinois painter John Walker brings to his gallery work at least two things from his former career in illustration. One is a skilled approach to working in acrylics, a medium that sometimes does not get its due as a vehicle for representational realism in gallery art; another is a feeling for the narrative element in his portraiture.

There is always a sense of story behind Walker’s expressive portraits, a suggestion that there is more to the moment than a simple pose.

On his website you will find galleries of current and archived work, that includes some landscape paintings, as well as a selection of drawings and studies. Walker also has a blog with additional images.
