my artistic ability. 2002.

His art has the subjective notion rather than being eminent of contemporary inhibitions. Significantly in respect of, the artist Nicky Walker has favoured of recent works an animated commentation whereas applicable to subject a motion before or after, therefore leaving an open line for the viewer to a style that has emerged from the advertant renaissance appreciated to his ability which the artist regards as the most significant adjector and factor to his work, and to his impervious mind control for the discerned enthuasist abid critique.

in the Mother City, Cape Town South Africa.
Nicky showed talent having the ability to draw naturally in his primary school years illustrating drawings on the blackboard for the teacher and fellow pupils, though never did have Art as a subject, he of his own accord, knowingly being an artist has studied overall the history of art, and to this date is in pursue of the the simplicity that bares the visual splendour to his works.

where Nicky matriculated; Nicky has and will always admire the secrets that Tretchicoff displayed in his works, though known as 'kitsch' then, but a fine art through the ages and will always memoir that he shook the hand of a prolific artist Vladimir Tretchicoff, by the same token as Michaelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci historically in admiration of.
Hence, Nicky has since dedicated an art piece entitled Tretchicoff's Pigeon's Luck 1978-2009, Oils on Self Stretched Canvas, added to his Gallery page 21 August 2009.

artistic creations through the ages and to the future.
Nicky's Motto & quote of Art:
"In Art we render Creation,
in Creation we give life"
Nicky Walker 1961- Copyright.
...and so of Art as explained in theory, we use
space and apply matter as the first ingredients for
visual substance or imagery, from there subject or object appear where in our mind's eye a story and emotion takes
on the effect of the visual state.
"...vista virtae" God has given us everlasting sight.
