Cassens Fine Art is excited to showcase Cyrus Walker’s latest body of work titled, “SPF 90 Cowpoke," featuring his unmistakable and unique style of western art. Inspired by stylistic elements from the Rococo period and American Gothic style, thick black lines outline characters and objects to create scenes from the imagined west that look as though they were plucked from a comic book.

“The original sort of seed for this idea had to do with the idea of the fictional West and then the reality of the West, the imagined West,” Walker explains.

 

In “SPF 90 Cowpoke,” Walker presents a series of paintings that not only celebrate the romance of the Western frontier but also critique its often idealized representation. By infusing his pieces with both humor and critical insight, he invites viewers to question and reinterpret the stories and symbols traditionally associated with the American West. His dynamic use of color and form creates a visual dialogue between the past and the present, making each piece a conversation starter.

 

Cassens Fine Art has the privilege of joining Walker in conversation ahead of this exhibition, which you can listen to in full here. Walker offers listeners an eye into his artistic process and inspirations, as well as his journey to becoming the artist he is today.

Known for his intricate and evocative illustrations, Walker’s art invites viewers into a co-collaborative storytelling experience, where every detail sparks imagination and dialogue.
