Byron (Fli) Walker, Las Vegas Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement Measuring in at 6 ft. & a muscular 225 lbs., with a laid back personality, from Detroit, MI - Byron (Fli) Walker. At first glance Byron would appear anything but a passionate painter of color & emotions. Contrarily, he's a self-taught, creative, disciplined artist committed to strong compositions displaying fiery colors & passions mostly about the human figure & music. His given name denotes creativity, courage & confidence. He cleverly changed the spelling of his nickname 'Fly' (synonym:sharp) to 'Fli' (acronym: F.eel the L.ove & i.nspiration), infusing both terms into a pseudonym which he pens as a chinese character symbolizing his standards of craftsmanship. More than technique or design, it is vibrant color that makes his paintings step off the walls and into the heart of the viewer, evoking positive energy of emotions. Byron says, "Next to music, color is the universal language that speaks to everyone".
