Little behind on this since I've been sick.
What most see as a discarded piece of cardboard littering a side street, Jon Burgerman sees as an opportunity; a blank canvas to fill with his signature doodles and characters all jostling to escape from their colourful habitat in an explosion of energy.
Burgerman’s continuous scrawling style can be seen adorning all manner of mediums from toys to wallpaper but more specifically a vast array of originals and limited edition prints at his latest show “Paralysis of Choice”. An emotion we, the consumer and the artist alike suffer, often resulting in us doing nothing through the wealth of crippling options we are presented with on a daily basis. Fight this paralysis, ditch the distractions of soaps, celebrity magazines, and cups of tea, and view Jon Burgerman’s show when it opens this November at Electrik Sheep.
Jon Burgeman’s work reflects his dry sense of humour creating work so endlessly appealing and fun that it would look as at home on the wall of a slick city pad as it would on that of a sprawling country pile. It has also seen him produce work for the likes of Levis, Kidrobot, Nike, Pepsi and many other of today’s coolest brands looking for a slice of Burgerman fun.
Jon follows on from a roster of successful shows at Reluctant Hero’s gallery, Electrik Sheep including Faile, Eine, Eelus, Prefab, WK Interact, Seb Lester, Pure Evil and many more.
“Paralysis of Choice” opens Friday 27th November at 6 pm with one of Electrik Sheep’s infamous street parties and will fun till the end of December.
For those who can’t make it to the show all work will be available to purchase and view online at www.electriksheep.co.uk.
