Chris Bourke

Chris Bourke is based in the UK and has independently run his skate shop for the last ten years. He specialises in lino printing and his lino prints feature on skateboards and T shirts.  He hand prints each design so no two pieces are the exact same. His inspirations are Tattoo art,religious art, politics and music. He enjoys skateboarding and reggaemusic.

He has featured in many books and magazines And produces graphics for Skateboarding companies such as A third foot, Death skateboards and Consolidated skateboards. He has also exhibited his art in showsinternationally.

Im a fan of printing and am really impressed by his lino prints. Its quite a different approach to the typical skater designs around which are mostly screen printed.
