Create Birmingham, in partnership with the City of Birmingham, is pleased to announce that Lydia Walker has been selected as the local artist partner for Birmingham’s 2022 Asphalt Art Initiative.
"It’s more than sustainability. It’s about adding value to what’s already there."
"When I moved to the States to live with my dad, art connected us. He drew every day, and I began to draw with him. It was a way for us to bond after all this time apart."
"In my family, there were a lot of artists, artisans, and art lovers. So, it’s always been a part of who I am... I knew I wanted to be a part of connecting art and community."
"I’ve always felt that we all are deserving of great love. It might not look how you or someone else imagined or it might take a long time to find. Sometimes, it might not be the first time. But I really do believe there’s a fairytale for everyone. My work is about telling those stories."
