NYC promises so much, it attracts many to it's gritty concrete sprawl. This piece is made in response to my own decamping to Brooklyn. It reflects on the aspirations and expectations of relocating and the some what more mundane reality. The overriding sentiment is still one of excitement, this is America, this is New York, we all want a slice of the pie, a piece of the action.

Today is also a very exciting day... the new jonburgerman.com launched today! Check it out!!!

This RUN comes signed, numbered and if available with a Certificate of Authenticity from Jon Burgerman and 1xRUN.

About the Artist

Location: Brooklyn, New York

Jon Burgerman makes vibrant, neo primitive scrawls of shapes and colour. He's pushed his monster-like characters into compositions where cartoon-like forms are crammed on top of each until they create a screaming mass of energy.  Intensely prolific, he has pushed the character obsession of the late 90s into a far more interesting and strong direction. Think Walt Disney at an Incan monument on mescaline." Francesca Gavin, author of Street Renegades and 100 New Artists (published by Laurence King), Visual Arts Editor Dazed & Confused

Jon Burgerman has risen to be one of the prominent artists in the recent boom of practitioners who traverse the disciplines of contemporary art, design, illustration and entrepreneurism. His award winning work can be seen globally from gallery and bedroom walls to cinema and iPhone screens. A sense of British self-deprecation, dry humour and modern-day anxiety imbues his work along with an enthusiasm for salad. 

Burgerman exhibits internationally and has shown work along side artists such as Banksy, Damien Hirst, Vivienne Westwood and Gerald Scarfe. His work is collected worldwide and is in the permanent collections of The Victoria and Albert Museum and The Science Museum in London.

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, Sky, Kidrobot, Puma, Nintendo, MTV, Levis, 55DSL, Miss Sixty, AOL, Size? and Rip Curl. He also designed a special sick bag for Virgin Atlantic flights.

Burgerman lives and works in New York and online.
