— Charles Monteith Walker CLOSEOPEN

During his study at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Charles Monteith Walker was very much influenced by Alberto Morrocco and David McClure. Inspired by Scottish and Mediterranean landscapes, his work has become increasingly more bold in colour and composition, mixing imagery, symbols and Charles moves easily from representational landscape and still life to imaginative, vibrantly coloured, stylised compositions all crafted in thick layers of oil giving his works a strong, sculptural quality. His work is held in private and corporate collections both in the United Kingdom and overseas and he is now regarded as one of our most original contemporary Scottish artists.
