Grotesque illustrations and paintings by Adam Burke

adam-burke-intro
Adam Burke, also know under the name Nightjar Illustration, is an artist based in Portland, Oregon. Adam’s work shows a beautiful mix of reality and fantasy; mixing landscapes, creatures and animals from both real and imagined worlds.

The duality between reality and fantasy continues in the way Adam chooses to color his works. There always seems to be a foundation of natural, muted colors to create a base, yet often Adam adds another layer of bright and vivid colors to give the pieces something extra, or even something extraordinary. I love the vibe of Adam’s work, the otherworldliness and the stories his pieces are telling.

You can find more or Adam’s work on Instagram and buy prints in his webshop. Enjoy!
