- Artist Biography
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.’

This edition sets itself apart form Bourke’s other artworks through its carefully curated combination of thickly laid lino-print and dynamically applied spray paint. Every print in this highly limited series is totally unique in colour and aerosol design, elevating this work even further as an original piece.
