Viewing Frank Walter at David Zwirner, Grafton Street

‘Art is a festival in which a narrative is told’ wrote Frank Walter – and his first UK solo show at David Zwirner deserves all the song and dance. The Antiguan artist, writer and polymath produced a prolific body of work across his lifetime, ranging from Romantic landscapes to portraits exploring racial identity.

What’s just as extensive is the variety of materials Walter was working with – from wood, linoleum and the backs of photographs, to oil paint, shellac and glitter. Passionate that art should be universally accessible, his works may be small in scale (they really invite you to look close-up) but they’re big in scope.

Four years after the artist was posthumously honoured at the Venice Biennale, this exhibition comes hot on the heels of the artist’s retrospective at the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt. As interest around his work gains momentum, this David Zwirner show brings the colours of his work further to life.
