LONDON.- On its 25th anniversary Walton Fine Arts, a leader in emerging and blue-chip pop and street art is becoming one of the world’s largest galleries with over 7,000 sq ft. showroom on two levels.

Located in one of London’s premier spots, Walton Street in Knightsbridge, this gallery is one of a kind. Walton Fine Arts started 25 years ago with Modern Art dealing in blue-chip artists like Picasso, Chagall, Miro, Matisse, Bacon and Pop Artists like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Indiana.

Having understood its revolutionary potential, WFA was one of the first galleries in the UK to deal in street art by now well established names like Banksy and Nick Walker, and later brought works by Japanese master Takashi Murakami to the British public.

Walton Fine Arts is renowned for spotting and putting on the map globally successful street artists such as Bambi and, more recently, Plastic Jesus, whose ground breaking street pieces 'STOP MAKING STUPID PEOPLE FAMOUS' and 'Graffiti Is a Crime', among others, caught the world’s attention and got him an international following, countless features in the media and a large fan base that includes celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Charlize Theron, Spencer Matthews and Banksy himself.

Dubbed “the female Banksy”, Bambi is a mystery female street artist whose premiere world solo show was hosted at Walton Fine Arts in 2012. Bambi’s artworks have been collected by many celebrities including Rihanna, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Adele, Robbie Williams, Gary Barlow, Ringo Starr, Adele and Harry Styles as well as to members of European royal families, heads of State, CEOs of top global companies, investment companies and many prominent art collectors worldwide.

Following the successful trail left by Bambi and Plastic Jesus, a portrait of Sir Elton John commissioned to WFA represented Robert Hilmersson was recently added to his private collection. Their latest signing, neon artist Darren West, saw one of his pieces sold at the Global Gift Gala auction hosted in Paris by Eva Longoria for €10,000.

Walton Fine Arts and its artists have been featured in the world’s major magazines and papers including CNN, Huffington Post, The Guardian, BBC, the Independent, Grazia, GQ, Daily Mail, Time Magazine, Vanity Fair and more.
