Piers Bourke’s Art work is a combination of using progressive print and painting techniques, but with a traditional and time staking approach to assembly and detail.
The work has large elements of collage which creates a very sculptural and textured look and feel to the work. The pieces are eagerly collected by a global audience from all corners of the world.
Currently based in Singapore, Piers is a regular contributor to curators from all sectors who love the contemporary nature of his dynamic style and approach. His work is eye-catching and thoughtful. Each piece has a story based on his experiences and his passion for mixing traditional features with an eclectic love of design.
Utilising instantly identifiable icons such as postage stamps and telephone boxes, to name but a few, the only true constant in his work is change; Piers turns the traditional and ordinary into the extraordinary through his work that has become renowned and instantly identifiable as his own, a constant DNA that collators have come to love and value.
Piers Bourke is a rare breed of artist whose passion is drawn from love of his family, friends and adoration of geographical heritage. And of course his dog, Mink.
