Travis Walker was born in Tokyo, Japan, the son of an Air Force pilot and stay at home mom that moved frequently across the globe with their two children in tow. As a child, his world was filled with comic books, science fiction, and the romantic movies of 1980s and 1990s. A job at 12 years old drawing displays at a comic book store led to an interest in studying the arts as a career. After graduating with a degree in Painting and Printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University, the allure of the western landscape drew him to the valley of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where he has lived and worked for nearly 20 years, blending contemporary landscape painting with the fictional worlds of his past.
Travis Walker's work can be found at Altamira Fine Art in Jackson, Wyoming and Scottsdale, Arizona, and Visions West Contemporary in Montana and Denver, Colorado. He has been featured in SouthWest Art Magazine, Big Sky Journal, Images West, Mountain Living, Forbes, and The Guardian. He is the founder of the nonprofit Teton Artlab, an Artist In Residence program based in Jackson Hole.
