Walker Graham Fee

Born and raised in Queens, New York, Walker is the son of two painters. Maria Reyes Fee is an artist and scholar, and is of Cuban descent, and Brian Fee is an artist, craftsman and arts instructor of European descent. After graduating from LaGuardia High School for Music, Art and the Performing Arts, he briefly attended The Cooper Union School of Fine Art before leaving to pursue his artistic goals. Since then he has continued to create art that inspires self-love, self-learning, sharing and gratitude.

Currently, Walker is a ‘nomad’– intentionally living without a home or traditional employment– for the sake of his personal ‘Great Work’: The Chronicle of the Fireheart, an Illuminated Manuscript of his personal mythology. It is in the process of creating this tome that he hopes to familiarize himself completely with his inner life, and in doing so cast a light on those shared parts of humanity that our society has purposefully kept in the dark. It is his intention to buy a schoolbus, and transform it into his mobile live/workspace, where he will continue to research esoteric modes of knowledge in an effort to bring a new light of hope to our culture from ancient times. You can support his journey here!
