About The Artwork

This piece from a late night sketch, inviting the pop psych other-worldly characters to tumble onto the pad. It's partly inspired by thinking on a deep fake future and all the absurdities and humour that arise from the need to seek value and meaning in life - and how that often leads to foolish conclusions. These wholly original characters are born in my sketchbooks which are the hatcheries for my work as a muralist, street artist and performer. Part drawing, part painting - made with acrylic ink on primed canvas making it easy to frame. You can see the work I do across various platforms - festival installations, work with schools and fine art/ illustration on my website; www.upagainastthewall.co.uk The artwork is on a fine textured canvas and will be shipped rolled in a cardboard tube. You will see pencil lines - it's all part of the process and therefore the artwork. I will include the original sketch. I hope it calls out to you. The artwork will include a certificate of authenticity with a personal sketch /thank you note. The artwork resonates outsider and underground comic art where street and alt pop culture hang out -with a humorous twist of animist absurdity. Scotts artworks feature all over the UK at festivals and events, as a muralist and painter his work echoes the punk sensibilities of urban DIY sub-culture and joy of embracing an uncertain reality. Scott Walker, a muralist and explorer of post pop alt-culture, has been making visual works in London and beyond for 3 decades. His unique style of comic fed, urban psychedelia was born in the furnaces of Londons underground club scene, circa 1989. Back then, Scott was part of a club styling collective whose huge ultra violet canvases and murals adorned the walls of thumping railway arches and industrial warehouse raves, lurid dens of glamour and penthouse lairs through the 90's to the 00's. Presently Scott lives in the wilds of Dartmoor in the UK where he makes installation murals for festivals and commercial clients, juggles family life - and draws and paints. His interactive street-styled-punk colouring walls feature at festivals such as Glastonbury, Singapore kite festival, clients include BBC, Amnesty International, Action for Children, Google, Amazon, Microsoft. Scott continues to work within the education and festival sector providing huge interactive street styled canvases and panels, where school children and families can experience the thrill of expressing themselves as graffiti artists. His installations have had exposure all over the UK and abroad including in China, Singapore and UEA.

Scott continues to work within the education and festival sector providing huge interactive street styled canvases and panels, where school children and families can experience the thrill of expressing themselves as graffiti artists. His installations have had exposure all over the UK and abroad including in China, Singapore and UEA. Scotts paintings and drawings reflect a world of alt comic cartoon pop and urban punk DIY values. There is humour and humanity in his psychedelic style. Animist musings and subterranean culture inspire his art, characters resonate with cartoon trash pop, outsider brut and his exposure to indigenous cultures as a child growing up in New Zealand and East Africa. All artworks will be safely shipped with a certificate of authenticity and a personal sketch and thank you!
