We had the good fortune of connecting with Kameron Walker and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kameron, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
The most important lesson my career as an artist has taught me is to have a tunnel vison cutting off all the outside influences that isn’t in alignment in your journey. it can be difficult for even the ones closest to you could steer you away even if their intent was to want the best for you. its best to always focus on your desires and making them a priority in your life without an explanation to others about what your doing to get there.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
From A modernist approach, originality seen in my paintings controls narratives. through ingenuous compositions which is what makes myself as an contemporary artist go unnoticed throughout the local neighborhood of dallas. ive showcased in group shows, awarded grants, and published in news articles, my contribution to my artistic practices reflects my ambition and Engagement towards the arts community that surronds me, through volunteered workshops to nonprofit organizations specializing in the arts, and consistent experimentation and daily techniques in work, i continually finds ways to make use of enhancing the vibrant colors, light contrasts, and hard textures in art to this day.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love downtown Fort Worth! Not only have i worked there in the past i love the Fort Worth stockyards where everything culturally western is a big thing in Texas from the cowboy attire to the delicious treats, to the animals showcased, i guarantee once you’ve visited you’ll want to go back for more。

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
currently, i would like to thank the Joseph Glasco Foundation’s executive director Mark Barnekow for guiding me through the process in my art career and his willingness to help see through my potential into becoming a very promising artist.
