As we draw into a grey, monochrome winter a splash of colour feels much needed. That splash of colour comes to us in London next week in the form of David Walker’s upcoming solo show at the Lawrence Alkin Gallery, “A Blank Canvas Is A White Flag”. The show is heralded not only to be an all new collection of Walker’s trademark expressive portraiture but also groundbreaking for David as an artist as he explores new techniques and styles alongside collaborations with other amazing artists such as Ryan Callanan and Schoony. Ahead of this new development we sent Jodie to interview Walker for the lowdown on what to expect and where these new territories will lead him.
Smile Britannia is a charity art project launched by Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation and London Westbank Gallery in collaboration with Temwa. A collection of 25 urban artists including; Nick Walker, Inkie, Ryan Callanan “AKA RYCA”, David Walker and Mau Mau have created and donated unique artwork encompassing the theme of Smile Britannia.
These pieces are being sold at a charity art auction at the House of Commons on Friday 13th December. 100% of profits from the Smile Britannia auction will be donated to the charitable bodies the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation, Temwa and the Smile Britannia project.
