by The Editors on January 8, 2016


The Carlsbad Art Wall at Señor Grubby’s is getting a whole new look on the weekend of January 16, 2016 as Encinitas based artist Skye Walker takes over the east wall of the Carlsbad eatery.

The first 2016 CAW artist Skye Walker will bring his life-long love for illustration, design and mural painting to the CAW with his signature colorful composition of nature and environmentally conscious iconography. Walker found his love for art in his early youth while traveling the country with the family bluegrass band named EarthWalkers. They logged over 2,000 shows nationwide singing about preserving the environment. During this time, Walker’s father taught him the art of lettering and murals. His father was an accomplished sign painter and muralist in the 70’s and 80’s.
