Luke M Walker is a landscape and walking artist based in London. Part of his practice involves making specific walks both in urban and rural locations where he records his progress through the collection of data; his speed, steps, elevation etc. He uses the data to construct his ‘Datascape’ series which act as a painted record of a particular journey he has taken. More recently, he is incorporating other data sets into the works by collecting water samples along rivers and other potential walks could include pollution, ambient noise levels or other markers of environmental change, and his role as a witness of these changes. 

Having first completed a Foundation in Architecture & Built Environment - graduating with a Diploma with Distinction - from The Prince of Wales's Institute of Architecture, Luke went on to graduate from City and Guilds London Art school in 2014 with a commendation in MA Fine Art. 


His Professional achievements include: Pintar Rapido 2017 Prize Winner - Pooky Lighting Prize; Signature Art Prize - Winner for Painting 2015; Co-Curator & Exhibitor of The Mountain Arts Festival; visiting Lecturer in Fine Art at City & Guilds of London Art School; Associate Lecturer of Interior & Spatial Design at the Chelsea College of Art & Design.
