About

Original midcentury abstract oil on canvas painting by Clay Walker, circa 1956. The painting measures 34" x 47". Clay Walker, born in 1924 in Kentucky. Walker exhibited with Picasso, Warhol, Rauschenberg, etc.; he has shown in over 200 US and international exhibitions and he has been honoured with numerous major awards. As a teacher, all throughout his adult life, he motivated his students to master the basic art techniques then go beyond the traditional boundaries of creativity. Clay became the director of the San Antonio Art Institute, Texas. In 1963, he moved to California, eventually settling in Escondido in 1968. It was here that Clay designed and built his final house and art studio. This was the beginning of his reclusive period. He spent the majority of his time working in the studio, with family, and playing an occasional game of golf. Clay Walker died in March 2008.
