Christopher Walker is a part of the Alumni of the Ontario College of Art and Design University. He was elected an honorary member of the Drawing Society of Canada in 2003. His artwork is in the Royal Collection and he was elected an honourary fellow for the Royal Canadian Geographical Society in 2016.

His artwork can also be found in the collection of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Environment Canada and the National Science Foundation. His artwork has also been featured at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa, Ontario, Vancouver Maritime Museum and the Prince of Whales Northern Heritage Centre, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

Walker was born in Montreal, Quebec. His childhood paintings depicting Quebec rural landscape gave birth to his love and dedication towards art and the environment. A traditional approach, along with a distinctive, contemporary style stemming from his unique yet poetic observations of the human condition and the environment, make Walker’s art a unique and progressive form of realism.

In August 1994, the C.C.G.S. Louis S. St. Laurent and the U.S.C.G.S. Polar Sea icebreakers entered history as the first North American surface vessels to reach the North Pole. Walker is listed in the Canadian Archives as ship’s artist and his work depicting this expedition has been featured on the A&E Network.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

“The force which binds my concepts as a perceptual realist stems from my observations of contemporary human civilization and its relevance to the natural world. All subjects are bound together with metaphoric juxtaposition to render an enigmatic association giving the narrative of each image a subjective conclusion. The intent is to create a neutral platform of description as to the statement being made within
the composition.

My interest in environmental sciences has always been the nucleus of my creativity. I base my artistic expression on what I have experienced on this subject as well as combining the contemporary condition of human civilization in the 21st century. My goal is to depict human relevance to the environment from the perspective of modern culture.”
