Tomorrow sees the launch of a small exhibition of work by UK artist Chris Bourke. I’m not too familiar with Chris’s work but I love the images I’ve seen so far. He takes inspiration from tattooing, religion, music and politics to produce some seriously dark imagery using predominantly black ink on white.
Chris’s print-work is done by lino printing, a process which involves him cutting lino blocks himself, by hand – a time-consuming process but which leads to some very special results. Chris has worked with A Third Foot, Death and Consolidated Skateboards and has been featured in both skateboarding and tattoo art publications – I’m really looking forward to checking out his work.
The Chris Bourke exhibition of lino prints will be held within the Number Six clothing store from tomorrow (Tuesday 15th July). It runs for month, so there’s plenty of time to stop by, check out the work and do some shopping at the same time. Check below for an example of what to expect and find more on Chris Bourke here.
