The majority of my work is dream based abstraction. The use of color is most important to me, I’m very stimulated by shapes and forms and lost and found imagery.

Walters’ technique juxtaposes mixed layers of media, colors and shapes to transform figures into skewed afterimages harnessed in layers of translucent paint. Harking back to inspiration from the Bay Area Figurative Movement of the 1950s-60s, Walters’ spin on figuration builds depth through each layer of media, largely obscuring the under-painting creating an ethereal mix of lucid color-scapes on clay board canvases.

Born in Oakland in 1958, Walters grew up in Castro Valley and has lived in the Bay Area his whole life. Walters received his BFA in illustration from the Academy of Art University SF graduated in 1989 and a MFA in Studio Art from John F. Kennedy University in Berkeley in 2008.
