Each month, join MoAD staff members as we visit some of our favorite artists in their studios to see what they’re currently working on and how their work has changed over the past two years. This is a rare opportunity to hear from artists directly from their studios. We will follow all talks with an audience Q&A.
Demetri Burke uses mixed media–primarily oil paint–to express narratives of identity and culture on canvas. His art reflects his upbringing as well as his current experiences. His constant examination of themes is visible in his findings: Black like the skin, still like the clouds and hopeful like his mother’s smile.
Burke is a young artist residing in Atlanta, GA with a BFA Degree in Studio Art from Georgia State University. His work has been shown nationally in galleries, museums, publications and online exhibitions. Highlights include his 2022 debut solo exhibition, titled 'And Then We Heard the Thunder'.
