Yes, he definetely is. The only reason that Walter cut his name short to Walt is that his art work feels more personal than the work he created in his former career stages. And as his family and his closest friends refer to him as Walt, he decided to drop the e and r in his first name. So no, it has nothing to do with Walt Disney or Walt Whitman, although both admired by him.

No, there isn’t. This is the primary sales channel for work made by Walt. We offer also a small number of works through Saatchi Art 

As Walt very much values his privacy, in order to be able to create work fully focused, the studio is not open for public visit.
