Walter Price (1989, Macon, GA) is a painter living and working in New York. He earned a BA from the Art Institute of Washington, Arlington, VA (2011) and an AA from Middle Georgia College, Macon, GA (2014). Price’s works depict intimate narratives from the artist’s life and recognizable cultural symbols combined with a painterly stylistic treatment that places figures, objects, and sites in many, often contradictory perspectives.
