We Are BLOK HEDS is the creation of South Yorkshire based artist Nick Boruk. Born in the notorious ex-mining village of Goldthorpe, he now works out of his Doncaster studio.
After being made redundant in 2013, Nick enrolled on a 9 month part-time general art course at Doncaster College. For one of the projects he developed a range of characters influenced by his teenage years and the British Youth Subculture Tribes of the 1980's. Once the course was over he decided to evolve his ideas further, follow the punk DIY ethic and set up We Are BLOK HEDS, taking the name from the blocks of wood he worked on, with a nod to Ian Dury & the Block Heads. His work was well received and gained recognition with the likes of Fred Perry, Liberty London & BT amongst others.
We Are BLOK HEDS produce artwork in various media including hand carved wooden sculptures, street art, oil paintings & illustration. A range of merchandise is available to buy for BLOK HED fans.
Nick is available for personal and commercial commissions, please contact him for further details.
