"Perhaps the first thing to say about Nathan Walsh's astonishing photorealist cityscapes is that, for all the seeming influence of photography in their making, it is, paradoxically, their distance from that medium which makes them into interesting paintings. Walking the streets, making complex perspectival drawings that subtly adjust space to make a good picture, a knowledge of art history, Bonnington in particular - Walsh uses all these means to arrive at something much richer and more thoughtful." Nicholas Usherwood 2007 Galleries Magazine
Nathan Walsh deals exclusively with the urban landscape and aims to present a painted world which in some ways resembles the world we live in. He is fascinated by the city, it's visual complexity and constant state of flux. The act of painting is an attempt fix this information and give vision to our experience of living within it.
