Tony Walker’s artwork is focused on landscape and figurative painting drawn from worldwide locations and remote, coastal and urban Australia.
His free and expressive style in watercolour, acrylic inks on paper and canvas and other media, is interpretive and reaches to the heart and spirit of the subject.
He is represented in galleries in Australia and overseas. He has received many awards, most recently winning the prestigious Watercolour Society of Queensland 2015 and an award in Royal Queensland Art Society’s watercolour exhibition 2015.
He has solo exhibitions most years. The most recent solo was in late 2015 at Al Madina Gallery in Muscat, Oman, which represents his work. This followed a painting tour in France and Oman. He regularly exhibits at Aspire Gallery, RQAS Gallery, Watercolour Soc Qld, AGRA Melbourne.
