Malay Kampong

Malay Kampong

Richard Walker

Year: Undated.

Medium: Watercolour.

Size: 61 x 51 cm.

Clarity of subject and sometimes allegorical rendition of figuration in the muralist tradition are often reflected in Walker's work. His landscapes, like Malay Kampung and Kusu Island, are naturalistic and sensitive renditions of local scenery.
