Bourke is a London based artist who has been exploring how digital technologies have become intertwined with daily life. Bourke’s paintings are a digital mash up of photographs, code and gestural mark making which he takes into oil paint. His work draws inspiration from glitch art, surrealism to abstract expressionism and the dutch golden age.

My work always starts off with a firm foundation in observational drawing and photography which then gets digitally collaged and stitched together through various digital editing softwares. Once I am happy with my composition I take my work into painting. Oil paint gives me the opportunity to have a much more personal relationship to my subject matter.
