Info

Jon Burgerman is a UK born, NYC based artist instigating improvisation and play through drawing and spectacle. His work is placed between fine art, urban art and pop-culture, using humour to reference and question his contemporary milieu.

His instantly recognisable art has been exhibited all over the world from DIY exhibition spaces to museums to even the White House. His works are held in the permanent collections of institutions including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

He creates work in a wide variety of media from ink, spray-paint, digital and animation. Online his gifs have been viewed over 8.5bn times and he has a dedicated following across social media. He has collaborated with brands including Apple, Samsung, Pepsi, Lotte, Snapchat, Instagram and Nike. He’s made vinyl collectable toys, picture books, apparel, fabric collections, inflatables, homeware, sportswear, underwear and many other things, including NFTs.
