John Walter

John Walter makes drawings and paintings which take the form of costume, video, performance, song, installation, sculpture, printmaking, animation, architecture and artist’s books. His work is motivated by the idea that visual art must learn from design in order to re-engergise itself as a socio-political force. Walter is currently pursuing a Phd in Architecture and the Built Environment at Westminster University, and was previously awarded the Sainsbury Scholarship, The British School in Rome. Recent exhibitions include Spoolbase as part of Glasshouse, Aberdeen (2014); The Rococo Riots, Vitrine Gallery (2013); Lupa Colony, London Art Fair (2013); The Oil Barons Club, Smart Consultants, Aberdeen (2012); Cuntstone and Clown, 5 Years Gallery, London (2012)
