Jon Burgerman is one of the prominent key artists who traverse the disciplines of urban art, design, illustration and entrepreneurism. His award winning artwork can be seen globally from gallery and bedroom walls to cinema and iPhone screens. His art is instantly recognizable, combining fluid and lyrical lines, with distorted character forms and radiant pop color schemes. A sense of British self deprecation, dry humor and modern-day anxiety imbues his work along with an enthusiasm for salad.
Burgerman exhibits internationally and has shown work along side contemporary artists including Banksy, Damien Hirst, Vivienne Westwood and Gerald Scarfe. His work is widely collected and is in the permanent collections of The Victoria and Albert Museum and The Science Museum in London. He gives lectures, public performances and signings and has recently embarked on a pop music project as the band Anxieteam.
He has received a Cannes Lions Advertising award, two D&AD Silver award nominations and has collaborated with brands that include: Pepsi, CocaCola, Nike, Sony, New Era, Sky, Kidrobot, Puma, Nintendo, MTV, Levis, 55DSL, Miss Sixty, AOL, Size? and Rip Curl. He also designed a special sick bag for Virgin Atlantic.
Burgerman lives and works in New York and online.
