ABOUT THE ART

Three characters are commonly related to Nick Walker’s artwork. The first one is his illustrated doppelganger ‘Vandal’, the second one is probably ‘Mona Lisa’, because of his very famous, humorous and provocative Moona Lisa stencil, and the third one is the mysterious girl that appears in his Knickers cycle of artworks. “Nikers” is one of the editions from this later series. 

Out all the urban art works that aim to successfully transmit important messages, the stencil art of Nick Walker is among the most sophisticated ones. Although his methods can be defined as provocative and ironic, his style is clear, simple and slightly delicate, to use an attribute that may sound odd, when referring to the old-school British graffiti art scene. More than occasionally, his art was compared to the art of Banksy, which is not that big of a surprise given the fact that they both come from Bristol, are both influenced by the same stream and like to upset the consumerist society, common dogmas and close-mindedness. But even though their techniques are alike, Nick Walker somehow managed to gain just a bit more refined publicity.

Nick has come a long way, from the ground-breaking Bristol graffiti scene practitioner to the iconic role-model he is now, whose work is inspirational to many young artists, and sold at auctions for thousands of dollars. As expected, one of his most iconic and famous characters is featured on half of his most expensive works. We’re talking, of course, about Vandal, the rebellious gentleman considered to be his illustrated alter-ego. Here is a brief description of ten Nick Walker's most highly evaluated works.

Nikers is one of the editions of the famous (and apparently very well received) Knickers. Walker used the same stencil pattern a few times in order to re-interpret this seductive piece. Using different background surface and different spray paint each time, he managed to sell a few editions of the Knickers saga. Changing the frame, the hue and the amount of color once again, Walker created a different effect, depicting the same girl.

The original black and white stencil version sold at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions London for £21,700.
