Jon Burgerman is a UK born, NYC based artist instigating improvisation and play through drawing and spectacle. He is a purveyor of doodles and is often credited and referenced as the leading figure in the popular 'Doodle' art style. His work is placed between fine art, urban art and pop-culture, using humour to reference and question his contemporary milieu. His is a pervasive and instantly recognisable aesthetic that exists across a multitude of forms including canvases, large scale murals (indoor and outside), sculpture, toys, apparel, design, print and people (as tattoos and temporary drawings). Burgerman studied Fine Art at The Nottingham Trent University, graduating in 2001 with First Class Honours. He has received a Cannes Lions Advertising award, two D&AD Silver award nominations and has collaborated with brands that include: Samsung, Pepsi, CocaCola, Nike, Sony, Sky, BBC, Puma, Nintendo, MTV, Levis, Miss Sixty, AOL, Size? and Rip Curl. He also designed a special sick bag for Virgin Atlantic flights. This along with many exhibitions and events around the world (including the Southbank Centre London, Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona, Neurotitan Berlin, 798 District Beijing, Madre Museum, Naples) and a series of collectable vinyl toys, (including 'The Heroes of Burgertown', produced by Kidrobot), helped introduce Burgermans work into the public consciousness.
