Walter Price (born 1989, Macon, Georgia) is an American painter based in New York City.[1]

Early life[edit]

Born and raised in Macon, Georgia, Price served four years in the Navy aboard the USS Whidbey Island.[2] His military service enabled him to pursue his art education on the GI Bill.[2]


Artistic practice[edit]

Price's artistic practice often involves materials beyond acrylic or vinyl paint, as he incorporates fabric and photographs into his works.[3] The paintings, often on wood panel, embody compositions that blur the line between abstraction and figuration.[2]
