Color Color Color is the first thing you notice in Robert Walker’s paintings.
Bright, bursting, symmetrical color.
Robert Walker is a Los Angeles based artist and art historian.
Walker taught art history at the college level for 25 years and has lectured at universities in both the US, Japan and Thailand and numerous museums in Southern California.
During his 45 year practice he has fabricated paintings and sculpture that reveal his deep interest in Eastern religions and practices.
A common theme is the bold use of color and patterns, inspired by the Buddhist mandala tradition; the effect is colorful, expressive and almost hypnotic.
Walker’s paintings often have a sculptural element, using the materiality of paint to create bas-relief areas across the canvas.
You can feel the Eastern influence in all of his work if you only look.
