Riso is renowned for using highly vivid colours and creating textured prints which have a charming and distinct veneer. This process has been dubbed 'digital screen printing' for its similarities in production methods. Stephen worked closely with master printer Inès Gradot from Risotto Studios to produce this edition.
Stephen Burke is an Irish artist and curator working between the UK and Ireland. He graduated with an MA in painting from the Glasgow School of Art in 2018 and is a recent recipient of the Agility Award from the Arts Council of Ireland and the Open Fund for Individuals from Creative Scotland.
Stephen is the founder of the social media platform Post vandalism which explores the aesthetics and concepts of graffiti mark-making processes and fosters support from a wide international community. This project inspired the most recent edition of Kunstforum International, the most renouned specialist journal for contemporary art in Germany.
Burke also co-founded the London based curatorial collective Pigeon Park, which organizes exhibitions in industrial spaces. This project was created in response to the post-pandemic threat posed to artists’ working conditions in the wake of the Covid crisis.
