Our Student's are Artists. No Really. Walker Antonio's Art will be Displayed in Possum's Art Gallery.
Walker Antonio is a Student Designer that attends Wofford College. Outside of making apparel, he is also an artist. From October 22 to November 27 his art will be exhibited at Possum’s Store Art & Artisan Gallery.
Walker Antonio has been steeped in the visual realm from an early age. His father, Mike Antonio, was a studio art major at Mary Washington College and currently has his own graphic design company. Walker became seriously interested in studio art at Woodberry Forest School under the tutelage and guidance of the department chair, Kelly Lonergan. Rather than an emphasis on technique, his training there stressed the visual expression of emotions using vivid color, bold lines, and dense textures. In the continuation of his studies in art at Wofford College, Walker has focused on honing basic skills, refining his process, and exploring more deeply issues of subject matter and style. Over the last two years, he has produced an extensive body of work.
He has created a range of pieces in the fields of sculpture and printmaking, but his primary interest is painting, preferably working on a large scale.
