Trent Walter is an artist, printer and publisher interested in the intersection of contemporary art and printed matter. In his artwork, Walter combines multiple readymade sources (textual, pictorial and/or sculptural) to explore narrative, history and intersecting time. Walter was joint recipient, with Brook Andrew, of the 2013–14 Georges Mora Foundation Fellowship, for the project 'Dual/Duel'. The pair also recently collaborated on the public artwork 'Standing by Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner', commissioned by the City of Melbourne. Through his studio, Negative Press, Walter commissions artists to create limited edition prints and artists' books. Negative Press commissions three editions annually and also works on print projects commissioned by artists and cultural institutions. Recent projects include artists' books by Christopher Day, Elizabeth Newman and Rose Nolan.
