MUCA stands for ‘Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art’ and it opened in the heart of Munich, Germany in 2017.

It’s current exhibition, IMAGO, is a beautiful collection of over 30 artists that came together from five different continents to give their take on a historical piece.

It featured David Walker’s piece ‘Brad Red’ which is 100cm x 100cm, Acrylic, krink and aerosol on canvas.

The exhibition is running from 18th of July until November 4th, 2018.


Each artist was asked to select a reference portrait from any medium and era in art history and create a current, contemporary take on the work within their own special style.

David’s reference portrait is a charcoal piece by Jacopo Tintoretto (1519–1594) called Roman Head (So-Called Head of Emperor Vitellius) and dates to ca. 1540-1580

Charcoal, heightened with white chalk, on blue paper faded to brown
13 1/16 x 9 13/16 inches (333 x 249 mm.)

IMAGO aims to accompany the visitors on a journey through different artistic eras, helping discover the international history and evolution of the portrait.
