Moona Lisa (Triptychon)

Nick Walker2013


Ermatingen, Switzerland

This piece is one of Nick Walker’s signature pieces. The ‘Moona Lisa’ is also the Nick Walker painting that
achieved the highest price at an auction. The ‘Moona Lisa’ reached a hammer price €60.000 (10 x the
estimate) at Bonhams in 2008. Our ‘Moona Lisa’ is a triptych that was ground coated and stenciled in one
piece and then severed into three. Each painting depicts Da Vinci’s creation with Nick Walker’s exhibitionist
touch. The priming is silver, white and black, while the stenciled Mona Lisa’s moon us in 3 different color
compositions. The reoccurring numbers 2, 3, 7 and 5 are stenciled in monochromatic black and white.
Viewed from the left-hand side each painting picks up color ways from the previous. Markings on each
180cm x 130 cm painting indicate the original entirety of the artwork. The silver lines and the numbers
continuing on the next piece are the most obvious hints. Harder to decipher is the Da Vinci Code that Nick
sprayed in the background running along all three paintings at the same height.
