The visual effect of Robert Walker’s work is both subtle and hypnotic. Approaching painting as a sculptor, Walker’s new work combines the usage of intricate bas-relief surfaces produced from multi-layers of segmented paint that are fused together, producing multi-colored images and topographical surface areas. Walker has long been a student of Buddhism and his abstract compositions are variations of traditional images used in Buddhist illustration. Robert Walker was born in Los Angeles where he lives and works today. He received his MFA from the University of California, Irvine and has shown extensively in the United States, Asia, and South East Asia.
