Walker’s inventive works have been featured before on The Art Junkie .  His latest solo exhibition, at Ferrin Contemporary in North Adams, Massachusetts, focused on cougars, birds, and trees co-existing alongside machine-like orbs, circuit and gears.

Walker “treats each surface as a canvas, adding highly illustrative black and white moments against fields of color. This juxtaposition serves to highlight the ever increasing tension between man and the man-made.” – exhibition notes.
