Manchester, United Kingdom

"British artist best known for daring, dynamic, fabulously colourful abstracts"
JOSEPH J WALKER is a contemporary British artist best known for his daring, dynamic, fabulously colourful abstracts; produced using acrylic ink, alcohol ink and acrylic paint. A huge fan of resin, Joseph uses it on many of his pieces to produce an incredible glass-like finish that further enhances the vibrancy and detailing of the colours, enabling him to create extraordinarily special artworks.



A skilfully versatile artist, Joseph’s uniqueness is his lack of limitation and his refusal to be tied to one style of art. Joseph is driven by a strong sense of adventure, an unfettered imagination, and a fearless fervour to keep exploring new avenues of creativity. He is loved and respected not only for his abstract artwork, but also as an accomplished painter of polo ponies, people and playful adaptations of acclaimed classics. For these pieces, Joseph works with an array of materials, including oil paints, acrylic paints, acrylic inks, alcohol inks, charcoal, pastels and Indian ink.

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"I was recently approached by leading global film and entertainment communications agency DDA and asked to collaborate with them on the promotion of the Mrs Lowry & Son film by creating my version of an L.S. Lowry painting.

I reimagined Lowry’s ‘The Rush Hour’, creating a modern day social snapshot, with the scene set at night, the mills transformed into a nightclub and apartments and the gloomy workers replaced with jubilant revellers.

I’ve never laughed out loud so much when painting a piece! It’s was fantastic to bring so much joy and energy into the painting. I’m not sure what Lowry would make of the modern day street scene, but hopefully it would make him smile!”"
