    David Walker Swapping Souls with Strangers David Walker's first major United States solo exhibition entitled “Swapping Souls With Strangers.” @ Robert Fontaine Gallery. Showcasing 12 new large-scale portraits (with some pieces reaching heights of over six feet), Walker creates a multi-layer canvas of spray paint. He works freehand without the aid of brushes, stencils or a projector, and approaches the traditional subject of portraiture with the contemporary visual language of urban art and graffiti. His pieces exist both on the streets and in the gallery. High levels of detail and workmanship give his paintings a fine art aspect, which both attract and repel the viewer with what he refers to as “ugly mark making,” challenging preconceptions about fine and urban art painting.

INSIDERS, is a term referring to how the global street art movement has advanced from the sidelines of the art world… eroding the walls between the gallery and the “streets as studio” setting… now… street art is supported by some of the most significant museums curators, galleries and collectors, thus becoming less of an outsiders club and more of a hugely significant force at a time when the art world is hungry for something more than references to the past.
