Richard Walker – Image and Myth

Richard Walker – Image and Myth


Best known for a dramatic, layered and visionary urban imagery, Richard Walker (born 1954) is a painter, printmaker and photographer. He works in a variety of media, including acrylic, collage, pastel, watercolour, charcoal and pencil, mainly on canvas and paper. This unique book is both a kind of autobiography – compiled and written by himself – and a selective catalogue of his work, past and present. Peter Parker, biographer of Christopher Isherwood, also interviews the artist.


“From an early age I wanted to be an architect .... Then, when I went to New York, I saw for the first time these monumental buildings which you couldn’t ignore. The word ‘portrait’ is apt because they had real presence and character. Later I became more interested in the space and light than in the buildings themselves ....”
