About the speaker

Adrian Octavius Walker is a mixed-media artist based in Chicago, IL by way of St. Louis Missouri.

His work is inspired by the black body, dynamics of the black family and archival work related to the African American experience and the untold stories they share. Working in both film and digital-format photography, Walker creates penetrating portraits influenced by his deep awareness of the nuances that pervade the human experience.

His greatest milestone to date is being one of the prize-winning artists in The Outwin 2019: American Portraiture Today Competition currently on display at the National Portrait Gallery Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.

Walker is currently represented by pt.2 Gallery in Oakland, Ca.
