ARTIST INFO

Ella Walker was born in 1993 in Manchester. She studied at the Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2015, and at the Royal Drawing School, graduating in 2018.

Walker’s practice combines painting, drawing and fresco, utilising various media including tempera, gesso, pastel and ink. Inspired by medieval narrative and costume, her highly stylised works often directly reference Renaissance and medieval iconography. Her works comprise of shallow spaces that utilise pattern and flat plains of colour that disrupt the narrative and structure of the composition.

Her work has been exhibited throughout the United Kingdom, including recent exhibitions, Draw Out the Figure that You Will Make, EMBASSY gallery, Edinburgh, 2018 and Unswept House, Glasgow, 2017. Her work is housed in several European permanent collections, including the Royal Collection, London. She is represented by Huxley-Parlour in London where she lives and works.
