Stephen Burke is a contemporary Irish artist based in Glasgow.
He first came to our attention as the co-author of ‘Buff’ in August 2017. The publication “documented and explored the concept of graffiti removal as an art form”, and through his other work with online platform ‘Post-vandalism’, Stephen’s work focuses heavily on the “aesthetics and concepts” of graffiti.
Stephen’s exhibition at Atelier Maser will feature a new body of work, including a collection of tiled paintings, steel sculptures and a short film which is “informed by, and recollective of the city landscape”.
According to the artist, his creative practice is heavily influenced by the urban landscape, creating work “inspired by our shared public places” with an aim to divert the public’s perception away from the conventional ideals associated with these spaces.
“The resulting artworks strive to bring a broader interest in the many irregular characteristics which make up our built environment.”
