Who is Chris Bourke?

Chris Bourke’s work is characterised by the use of strong text-based messages, often referring to the artist’s political opinions, issues of public morality and universal truths. Bourke formerly trained as a silversmith and less formerly as a tattoo artist whilst running his own skateboard shop ‘Spine’ for eleven years. He now works full time as an artist but remains greatly influenced by the motifs and symbology of tattoo culture, as well as ‘religious iconography, music, nature, the struggle and little birdies.’
