Walker Antonio (b. USA) is a Germany-based painter whose work removes the barriers between the real and surreal, the known and unknown, and the physical and the psychological. Working primarily on the large scale, his material process operates as both chaotic and controlled, being energetically messy and rough at the beginning and working slowly and meticulously in later stages. Antonio has exhibited his work nationally, with his most recent solo exhibition at the Richardson Family Art Gallery in South Carolina. He received the 2023 Whetsell Fellowship and completed his bachelor’s degree from Wofford College in Studio Art and Art History.
