With a deep curiosity for the natural world, Andrew Bourke’s work is inspired by the energy and beauty that is found within nature.
“Since I was a child, I have found myself curious of the natural world ... Drawn to the smallest of details, I look to find the space in-between.”
This passion for detail is seen in Andrew’s finely observed graphic work, and his deft use of colour. Having refined his craft over many years as an urban artist, Andrew moves between the mediums of aerosol, house paint, charcoal and acrylics with considerable skill. His work is distinctive for it’s rich and vibrant colour, technically accurate, fast, free-flowing line, and ambition of scale.
Andrew’s mural work can be seen around the streets of his hometown Melbourne, and throughout much of the Australia thanks to his extensive travels in search of inspiration. It is his love for “country” that has led to Andrew’s passion for photography, a further extension of his creativity and often becoming a source of reference that flows back into his work.
Andrew has previously exhibited in Melbourne’s NGV Studio Space and is now excited to be producing art primarily in a contemporary art context.
