Adrian Walker is a Brighton-based UK artist who for nearly two decades has worked solely in the medium of oil.

He graduated from Brighton Polytechnic in 1988 and was immediately immersed for some years in music, both recording and touring, which involved a large amount of travel. This experience with all its attendant colour and adventure informs much of the artist’s work later in life, the immediacy of performing having given way to a far more contemplative and deeper method of expression. Ever present sketch books filled during these travels provided the initial impetus for the past seventeen years of oil on canvas work.  The work describes a search for mystery, movement, warmth, balance. An emotional response, whether dramatic or perhaps even slightly intangible, is perennially asked of the viewer.

Oil on Canvas

“Maunsell Fort, Shivering Sands” celebrates the continuation of a long held fascination with the sea in all it’s infinite moods, which the artist has enjoyed concurrent to more overtly Norse based themes. This painting examines the fate of the noble structures left to rust away slowly far out at sea, some 14 miles from land. Maunsell forts, of which only a handful now remain, were designed as a first line of defence for the nation during WWII. Their 2-3 year tenure was brief although use was found for some of them as a base during the 60’s heyday of pirate radio. Sadly they have become too unsafe to visit any longer and eventually they will disappear altogether. This theme perfectly suits the strong sense of mystery which characterises many of the artist’s larger canvases.”
