Walt Shaw is an artist working in South Derbyshire, whose work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK and in Europe. His work usually integrates a variety of different media; such as collage, acrylics, graphite and inks. The pieces are abstract and explore
the tensions between a free, spontaneous approach and a very controlled and delicate execution. Each piece begins with experimentation and moves through to a controlled refinement through this process.
Walt is also an experimental percussionist who works with a variety of instruments and scrap and homemade objects. There is a huge overlap in process between his percussion work and his visual art.
Exhibition Launch: Saturday 11 January 6.30-11.00pm. Walt will perform a short solo as part of opening of the exhibition.
