Canadian artist Steve Walker has been called the Norman Rockwell of Queer Art.
Steve Walker is driven by a social need to depict a particular kind of gay culture: his own.
The painter invites us to take a closer look at life. He shows us that gay life has its uncertainties, its tenderness and its own spirituality. His large-format paintings are completely enveloped in this tenderness.
Light is one of the main qualities of his paintings. It resides in the work, vibrant and tranquil. His technique may be classical, but his subject matter is completely contemporary.
