About Brooke Walker

Brooke Walker’s artworks give a voice to the voiceless. Her passion for wildlife conservation and desire to understand the intricate nuances of the human/non-human animal relationship inspires her arts practice. This love of wildlife was created and nurtured during childhood surrounded by animals on a hobby farm in McLaren Vale, South Australia.

In 2009, Walker graduated from UniSA with a Bachelor in Visual Communication (Illustration Specialisation) and has since continued her artistic studies and skill development through workshops held by Robin Eley of the Art Academy South Australia. In addition, she has sought painting technique mentorships by American painters David Kassan and Shana Levenson.

Walker hosted ‘PERICLITATUS’, her first solo exhibition of charcoal drawings in 2015. This exhibition showcased the worlds most endangered species through beautifully rendered portraits. Since then her technique has shifted towards oil painting, while still utilising the same attention to detail, giving her works a hyperrealistic quality. Her second solo exhibition DUALITY, in September 2019 at the Fleurieu Arthouse, showcased all new oil painting, drawing and installation works focusing on the relationship between humans, horses and the artists own reality.

In 2017 Walker was awarded the ‘Hidden World’ Category prize at the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Awards in London with her work ‘Okapia Johnstoni’. Since then she has also won the ‘Hanger’s Prize’ with ‘Great Barrier Reef 1’ in the 2017 Solar Art Prize, the overall winner for the ‘2018 RSASA Characters of the Fleurieu’ art prize with her artwork ‘Soul’ and the ‘People’s Responsibility’ category prize with the work ‘Life or Death’ in the 2018 Solar Art Prize. She was a finalist in the Lethbridge 10000 during 2018 and 2019 and the Alice Springs Art Prize in 2018.

Not content with being a traditional wildlife artist, Walkers’ new works blur the lines between the real and surreal. She takes inspiration from historical research and symbolism, current environmental issues such as climate change and urban sprawl and her interest in animal social sciences. Her artworks are intertwined with deep empathy and an emotion that is hard to conceive in the written word. Above all, it is her goal to create beautiful, thought provoking imagery to encourage empathy and discussion in order to entice change in the human attitudes towards non-human animals.

In early 2020 Walker will be mentored by acclaimed Melbourne street artist Rone after being awarded grant funding through the Guildhouse Catapult program. Brooke has a vision to place often overlooked non-human animals back into the cities through engaging street art, encouraging the viewer to notice and interact with them day to day. Street art has historically been a tool for change, a place to advocate and express personal, social and political opinions.

Brooke Walker has occupied a studio space at the Fleurieu Arthouse in McLaren Vale for the past 2 years with her arts business Brooke Walker Fine Art being founded 3 years ago.

As part of her ongoing practice Brooke Walker donates a percentage of artwork sales directly to reputable wildlife conservation charities. She has also donated works to raise funds for the Explorers Against Extinction Foundation in London and the Australian Rhino Project in conjunction with Zoos SA.

Online Art Sale

As a creative, physical medium, art often finds it challenging to adapt. We think this is fairly ironic as art can also be fluid and open to interpretation. Why then, should the showcase of physical art, be restricted to physical galleries?

The artworld is typically a small and secluded one that doesn’t get much attention from the world of technology. We wanted to change that by merging both technology and art to create a virtual gallery and online art sale platform. It is because of its secluded nature that artists find it so hard to break through and get involved and we want to do something about that. Founders Nancy Donaldson and Jarrod Knight started out with a shared goal. To create an easily accessible place for people to see, buy, learn about, and sell art online. Art Lovers Australia has become everything that envisioned and more but most importantly, it’s a community that anyone can be a part of.

How Do I Choose from All the Amazing Art For Sale Online?

When you’re spoilt for choice, choosing your next work of art isn’t easy. Art has the ability to make you feel a range of emotions so you need to first consider the tone you want to set for the space your art will go in. Something relaxing in the living area, something playful where you host guests and something sensual for the bedroom. You don’t want the wrong artwork in the wrong room as it will throw off the mood in that particular area. Another key thing to consider when browsing all the amazing art for sale online is your budget. You don’t want to find yourself in a position where you’ve fallen head over heels for artwork that’s out of your price range. Instead of showing you art that is outside of your budget, we allow you to filter your search by price, size, colour, and even medium so you find exactly what you’re looking for when you shop for art online. While you might have an idea of the type of art you’re looking for, it’s important to keep an open mind. Instead of only looking at oil paintings for sale, try not to be so narrow in your search. Broaden it a little bit and you might be surprised by what catches your eye. It could be a photograph that steals your heart in the end.
