Michael Angelo Burke is a master carver and painter of wooden murals. Fifteen years ago, Michael trained in Māori carving with Tony Kopua at Ohinemutu. Finding that he was a natural, Michael went on to work with Te Maru Marsh and other carvers around the North Island.
Nowadays, Michael works across multiple disciplines - carving, drawing and painting - to produce his own works inspired by nature.
In his latest exhibition, Peace on Earth, Michael presents a survey of new and recent works, ranging from small hanging works to free-standing trees. Feilding Art Centre will be full of these magnificent creations which will bring you closer to nature and enable you to better appreciate the beauty of our native flora and fauna.
Peace on Earth is presented with the generous support of the Manawatu District Creative Communities Scheme.
