The  Big Secret( 2015) conte on paper


In collaboration with the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, mac presents: Shock and Awe– a major new commission of drawings.

Acknowledging an absence of representation over the past 100 years, Walker’s exhibition concentrates upon the contribution of Black servicemen and women to the British Armed Forces and war efforts from 1914 to the present day. It reflects upon contemporary British conflict alongside historical events of warfare involving Britain and the colonised nations of the British Empire. As the world commemorates the centenary of World War I, this remarkable body of work addresses the stories that remain largely untold.

It has been a while since my last post!  Having been very busy with research and  developments of  new and exciting forthcoming projects!

Having  said that, I am  very  excited and  happy  to  announce that there’s  a busy  time  ahead,  as I will  soon be creating  a new  wall drawing. ‘Sub Urban : New Drawings,’  curated by  Richard Hylton.  Will  be  featured between August  – October,  at  James Hockey Gallery, University  of  Creative  Arts  Farnham.  

 Further information will be available  soon!
