Walking Man tells the remarkable tale of unknown artist and ‘walking man’ Ross Seaton, an ever-present figure on the suburban streets of Perth, often seen pushing his wheelbarrow or pram along the busy Stirling Highway over many decades. The local community, fascinated by his comings and goings, mused over his intentions. But no one had it right.

Ross’s story is told through the lens of Professor Ted Snell, as he sorts through thousands of artworks and collected items hoarded and stockpiled in every room of Ross’ home to bring together an eclectic exhibition set to stun the local Arts community and beyond. The Walking Man was a prolific artist, hidden in plain sight, whose work shines a light on the concept of making art just for art’s sake.
