John Walter’s maximalist paintings hit SE1
“The humour and colour in my work has often been misunderstood,” says the artist John Walter. “In seducing the viewer with colour, decoration and play I am able to engage them in more difficult themes surrounding sexual and social behaviours and attitudes.” Which is precisely what the provocative artist is up to in his vibrantly-hued, superficially pretty new show, The Rococo Riots. It opened this week at Vitrine in Bermondsey Street and runs until 1 June.
Vitrine, first floor, 183 – 185 Bermondsey Street, SE1. The Gallery is open Wednesday – Saturday 12-6pm, and until 8pm for SLAM on the last Friday of each month
