Slideshow: Contemporary art at The Alexander 

Nick Walker, who made his name as part of England's underground graffiti scene, now divides his time between the U.K. and the States.
Walker's graffiti can be seen on every floor of the CityWay parking garage connected by a skyway to The Alexander.
Walker's surrogate and trademark character is the Vandal, who appears ostensibly respectable in his bowler hat and gentlemanly garb.
Some of Walker's paintings are hidden in corners of the CityWay parking garage.
Constructed out of plastic combs in tribute to its namesake, Sonya Clark's 'Madam C.J. Walker II' is located in The Alexander's second floor reception area.
