Born in Bedfordshire in 1963, Robert Walker was interested in art from an early age and later taught himself by studying the paintings and methods of the Old Masters. Robert Walker was always particularly attracted to Rembrandt and the Dutch masters because of their dramatic use of light.
Robert Walker’s paintings are generally of quite simple objects and he enjoys trying to create something interesting by using light and composition to good effect. “The simplest object can become a thing of beauty if it is handled in the correct way, which is always the challenge.”
