About

Philip Burke is the artist who creates the oil paintings that are featured on the covers of Rolling Stone, The New York Observer, The New Yorker, Suddeutcher Zeitung, Vogue, GQ and Time. Most of the original oil paintings are purchased from Burke by the subjects themselves. Photorealism has a few of the original oil paintings that are still available, and this is one of the best of them. Article by Buck Quigley : A few weeks prior to his exhibit entitled The Likeness of Being: Portraits by Philip Burke, which opens on Friday (4/10) at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, Burke met with Artvoice at the office of L.B. Madison Fine Art near his home in Niagara Falls, NY, where much of the work for the upcoming show was being gathered in preparation for display at the gallery. Moving quickly around a small, sunny room crowded with canvases stacked several deep against the walls, it’s clear that Burke is enthusiastic about his upcoming exhibit—the largest of his career. He points out some early works of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, commissioned for Vanity Fair magazine when it resumed publishing in 1983. The works are smaller—maybe 2 feet by 3 feet—done on cardboard canvasses. “You can see I was poor,” he laughs, “Not that I’m rich now.” Then he pulls out some larger pieces. A three-by-four-foot portrait of Kurt Cobain with tortured eyes staring out from behind grungy locks of hair, with small, smoldering wings rising above the green cardigan sweater draping his shoulders, above a blood-red hand, dated April 25, 1994—just three weeks after the Nirvana front man was found dead, an apparent suicide, in Seattle. It’s one of the many images of famous musicians that Burke painted for the table of contents page of Rolling Stone magazine for many years, beginning in 1989. Next to that he points out a portrait of Neil Young painted on a similar white canvas—one of nine he did last year for the German edition of Rolling Stone. “What was cool about it was that I had total freedom, which is what I used to have back at the contents page of Rolling Stone,” he adds, “Where they don’t need to see a sketch and I can just do whatever I want.” From Wikipedia Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and humanitarian. He is best known for his work with his E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political sentiments centered on his native New Jersey, his distinctive voice and his lengthy and energetic stage performances, with concerts from the 1970s to the present decade running over three hours in length. Springsteen's recordings have included both commercially accessible rock albums and more somber folk-oriented works. His most successful studio albums, Born to Run (1975) and Born in the U.S.A. (1984), showcase a talent for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily American life. He has sold more than 64 million albums in the United States and more than 120 million records worldwide, making him one of the world's best-selling artists of all time. He has earned numerous awards for his work, including 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award as well as being inducted into both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999.
