signed with the artist's monogram and numbered 8/12 on the reverse stencil spray paint on canvas
30 by 30 in. 76 by 78 cm.
This work was executed in 2008.
Emerging from the Bristol street art scene of the 1980s, a time when he was largely inspired by contemporary street art in New York, Nick Walker first began experimenting with stencils in the early 1990s, a move which was to lead him towards his now unmistakable signature style. Walker's bowler-hatted 'Vandal' is now recognized across the world, his utterly English suit a deceptively elegant disguise for a distinctly anti-establishment protagonist. Strongly influenced by comic books and the dystopian imagery of films such as Blade Runner, the artist's success in both London and Los Angeles has led to his work being featured in projects as diverse as Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and the video for I Gotta Feelin' by the Black Eyed Peas.
