Henry Jock Walker’s practice commonly explores possibilities of surfing, painting and performance
through collaboration, and socially inclusive events. Walker has developed a national nomadic practice, utilising his Toyota Hiace van as an ever-changing exhibition/studio/performance site and mobile core of operations. Walker both questions and celebrates the place of contemporary art in Australia through public studio practice, thinking and working with many urban and regional communities.
Walker has been prolifically practicing, performing and exhibiting nationally for ten years, showing in leading artist run spaces and contemporary art organisations; including solo shows at First Draft Gallery, Sydney, Sawtooth ARI, Constance, Penny Contemporary, Tasmania, Witch Meat ARI Brisbane, TCB, Rearview Gallery, BUS Projects and West Space as part of the Next Wave Festival, Melbourne, Felt Space, Fontanelle, Sister Gallery and CACSA in Adelaide. Walker was a founding co-director of the mobile ARI tarpspace. Walker studied at the Art School of South Australia 2006-2008, partly studying abroad in San Diego, California. Henry successfully completed his honours in 2011 at the Victorian College of Art, Melbourne.
