V for Vandal

Nick Walker

“In 1992 I began to combine stencils with my freehand work, which allowed me to juxtapose almost photographic imagery with the rawness which evolved from conventional graffiti styles. Stencils introduce an impact element to my work. The appeal of stencils is that they allow me to take an image from anywhere – dissect any part of life – and recreate it on any surface. I try to add an element of humour or irony to some paintings to add a little light relief to the walls. Painting is a form of escapism for me and if my work allows the spectator to do the same thing, then I’ve achieved more than I set out to do.” - Nick Walker. "V for Vandal" leaves us with a feeling of unsettlement and uncomfortability, with the subject matter giving us the two fingers. This image conjures up a double-pun meaning for the viewer, with the use of a rude finger gesture, and the fingers representing the letter "V" in vandal, a label Walker continually gives himself.
