Meet the artist

Name: Deven Bhurke

Deven-Bhurke.jpgTell us a bit about your work to date

I got involved in my first Wild in Art event in 2013 when GoRhinos came to Southampton. Since then there has been no looking back. I have done nearly 30 Wild in Art sculptures in the last couple of years. I embarked on this journey to eventually build my canvas painting portfolio but these incredible sculptures have kept me busy since 2013. 

Describe your style

My style is quite versatile and you will see a lot of graphic influence in my work as that is where my background is. I mostly enjoy creating funny and engaging characters and geometrical patterns. 

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Each project is different and you need to use different strategies to inspire you. Some projects are quite focused on what sponsors want and on occasions will provide a brief. Other times, I use the shape of the sculpture to inspire me with ideas.
