“Luna” A painting that references characters and elements from all the other paintings. The skull is that of a rabbit, the crescent moon seen in other paintings has now become full.

John Walker has been working as a professional artist for over thirty years. After graduating from The American Academy of Art he began a career in illustration, creating a wide array of artwork for clients nationwide, including McDonalds, Random House and National Geographic. Acrylics became his media of choice during this time and he has become fluent in their application. His focus has now shifted to painting and exhibiting personal work centered around imagined narratives and faux antiquities from an invented culture.
