Henry Jock Walker
Henry Jock Walker's practice commonly explores possibilities of surfing, performance and painting through collaboration, and socially inclusive events. Walker has developed a national nomadic practice, utilising his Toyota Hiace van as an ever-changing exhibition/studio/performance site and mobile core of operations. Walker both celebrates and questions the place of contemporary art in Australia through public studio practice, thinking and working with many urban and regional communities.
For ten years he has been prolifically practicing, performing and exhibiting nationally - showing in leading artist run spaces and contemporary art organisations.
Walker was a founding co-director of the mobile ARI tarpspace. Studying at the Art School of South Australia 2006-2008, partly studying abroad in San Diego, California, he successfully completed his honours in 2011 at the Victorian College of Art, Melbourne.
