Larry John Walker

Larry John Walker was born and raised in East London. He studied Marketing at University of Kent, Canterbury, but as he built a 20 year career in the advertising industry, he kept thinking back to the numerous Fine Art Studio classes he took while at University. He had always dabbled in painting, even occasionally renting studio space to allow adequate escape for him to explore his passion, but it wasn’t until 2012 that he made the transition to full time painter.
His works often refer to pop and mass culture as well as quotidian iconography. With influences including David Hockney and Frida Kahlo, Walker is typically inspired by his environment, the people around him, cinema, fashion, music, traveling, and his everyday life.
Larry John Walker currently splits time living and working in San Francisco and Brighton, U.K.
