Christopher Burk

A resident of Columbus, OH, Christopher studied at the Columbus College of Art and Design and at the Myers School of Art at the University of Akron.  Burk finds inspiration in the urban neighborhoods he calls home.  He is always searching for something new; unique forms and compositions, for example, that most people would walk past without taking notice.  In this vein, he finds beauty in mundane elements such as rooftops, water towers, and utility lines.

Burk has exhibited extensively, including shows at the Viridian and George Billis Galleries (NYC), the EVOKE Gallery (Santa Fe), Gallery 19 (Chicago), ART Hamptons, Vermont Studio Center, Ohio Art League, Columbus College of Art and Design and the Columbus Cultural Arts Center.  He is a recipient of an Individual Excellence Award from the Greater Columbus Arts Council for 2015, 2017-2019.  His work was included in the 2017 temporary mural series in the Short North Arts District in collaboration with NYT bestselling author Larry Smith.  In 2018, Burk was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and was featured in a solo exhibition, Illuminating the Everyday, at the Springfield Museum of Art..  In 2019, his work was featured in the ConnectArt exhibition in Matanzas, Cuba in addition to being awarded a Visual Arts Fellowship with the Greater Columbus Art Council and Columbus Museum of Art.
