Scott Walker (b. 1996, Massachusetts) is a New York City based fine artist working in traditional fiber craft techniques, such as embroidery and quilting. In his work, Scott grapples with the experience of being queer and effeminate. He uses a deliberately feminine aesthetic, one that is soft in both material and sensibility. His work is also campy, playing with notions of taste and gender, and elevating unsophisticated subject matter, such as tween magazine covers. His work is nostalgic, combining his nostalgia for fiber crafts with his fondness for pop music and pop culture—spaces where femininity has been centered and celebrated.
Scott graduated from Parsons the New School for Design in 2018 with a BFA in Fine Art. His work has been exhibited in New York City and Swampscott, Massachusetts.
