Brian Burke, RCA

Brian Burke is one of Canada's foremost figurative painters. He was named Royal Canadian Academy in the spring of 2003 and has been the recipient of much critical acclaim.

Burke's work is in collections in Canada, the United States, and Europe. Burke studied at Holland Collage and Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Brian Burke has been called 'wickedly funny' by Toronto Art Critic Peter Goddard.

His work captures the insidiousness of corporate culture, the mundane moments in all of our lives, and the loneliness and stress of a modern world. He does this all, with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek.
