Ross Walker

Posted in Artists by Andy Wicks on 9 August, 2012

I managed to catch Ross’s show at Studio 1.1 last month as part of their 30 Artists in 30 days and found myself admiring his print editions on his website only last week. Today i stumbled across a fundraising page (not entirely sure how i found this) in which Ross is looking to raise money to fund him through Turps Banana magazine’s 1st year of their Art School Programme. In exchange for a small amount of money he’s offering a selection of different prints and paintings and while I’m not really in a position to buy more artwork at the moment I couldn’t say no to £60 for one of the very prints I was looking at last week.

While we’ve never met I felt a want to get involved and support Ross’s efforts as i had a similar dilemma when I was accepted to the Florence Trust, needing time to make the most of the opportunity without working every hour under the sun to pay for it (I offered a selection of paintings each priced at a months studio rent).

So if you like what you see and want to support an artist you could do far worse than click on the following link –
