Nick Walker is one of the world’s best-known street artists. Born in 1969, he emerged from the infamous and groundbreaking Bristol graffiti scene of the early 1980s. As a forerunner of the British graffiti phenomenon, Nick’s work has become a blueprint for hundreds of emerging artists, including Banksy. His work is constantly evolving and remains innovative, modern and thought-provoking.
The Bridge series launching on November 15th 2016 features a unique collection of five original works each a homage to New York’s legendary bridges.Proceeds from the The Morning After : Brooklyn print will go to Coalition for the Homeless, which provides emergency food and clothing, eviction prevention, crisis services, permanent housing, job training and programs for youth to more than 3,500 homeless New Yorkers each day.
Dave Giffen, Executive Director for the Coalition for the Homeless remarked, “Nick Walker has been such a terrific supporter of the Coalition for the Homeless, and we are honored to be a part of this beautiful project that focuses on the bridges that connect us rather than on the differences that separate us – especially at a time when so many New Yorkers are in such desperate need.”
Martin Klipp, Billboard4 President and YouTube Art Curator quotes. “The series of large scale canvases have taken 2 years to complete. It has been a labor of love for Nick Walker who now calls New York his home.”
