Robert Walker is an American artist who was born and still lives in Los Angeles. He received his MFA from University of California Irvine in 1971. Walker’s work is inspired by the Buddhist tradition and is characterised by bold colours and geometric patterning.

Inspired by Buddhism

Walker has always had an interest in Eastern religions, after growing up in a family of religious fundamentalists where iconography was banned. In particular, he is inspired by the exuberance of Buddhist illustration and the Buddhist principles of interdependence and interconnectedness of all things.

Bold colours and patterns

Walker works across a variety of media, including painting, drawing and sculpture. A common theme is the bold use of colour and patterns, inspired by the Buddhist mandala tradition; the effect is colourful, expressive and almost hypnotic. Walker’s paintings often have a sculptural element, using the materiality of paint to create bas-relief areas across the canvas.

International acclaim

Walker has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions for over 40 years in galleries and museums in the USA and Asia. His work is featured in the collections of numerous museums in the U.S. and Asia, including many private and public international collections. Walker is also a social activist in the LA community, pioneering initiatives for artists with HIV/AIDS, homeless artists, and has served as a board member on a number of non-profit art organizations.
