Lot description
One of Nick Walker's most critically acclaimed images, "Moona Lisa" was featured in the historic 2008 Urban Art auction at Bonhams, where it sold for ten times the high estimate, establishing Walker at the forefront of the Urban Art scene. Walker's pop imagery combining humor, recognizable graphics, and references to contemporary culture has made him a popular voice and a vivid presence in the realms of both street art and fine art.

As one of Britain’s most notorious and ground breaking graffiti artists, Nick Walker (b. 1969) often uses dry humor to drive home his biting social commentary. After his art was continually destroyed in the urban environments he worked in, Walker effortlessly adapted from the walls of Bristol to canvases, maintaining his distinctive style and energy to create sophisticated works of spray paint and stenciling. Walker’s work has been fully embraced by the music, advertising, and film industries, appearing in such films as "Judge Dredd" and Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut."
