Nick Walker.
A graffiti writer on the scene in 1980s Bristol, Nick started combining stencils with his freehand work in 1992 and injecting his photographic imagery with irony, social commentary and schoolboy humor. A pioneer for this brand of fusion, his style of understated funnery influenced a number of artists in his generation during what eventually grew into a stencil-heavy scene. In recent work his Street Art stencil satire has take on more serious targets like the hypocrisy of the Pope and the Catholic church in light of child sex abuse scandals, the banning of the Burkha for Muslim women in France, and the prevalence of violence in today’s America. —Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo.
