The UK artist has built a strong reputation through his recognisable and colourful artworks of swooping, intertwining lines and hyper-emotional characters. Working across a variety of media that includes drawing, painting, print, animation, large scale murals and product design, his art retains a hand-made quality. 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 contemporary 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 gives lectures, public performances and signings and has recently (late 2009) embarked on a pop music project as the band Anxieteam, who have played a series of gigs in New York, Germany, Italy and Brazil. In 2008 he was invited to appear as a guest on the popular BBC TV show Blue Peter, making a special piece of work live on air to celebrate the shows 50th anniversary.

 




He has received two D&AD Silver award nominations and has collaborated with brands that include: Cadbury, Pepsi, CocaCola, Nike, Sony, Sky, Kidrobot, Nintendo, MTV, Levis, 55DSL, 2K/Gingham, Miss Sixty, Aol, Size? and Rip Curl. He also designed a special sick bag for Virgin Atlantic flights. In 2009 burger was setup to further explore brand collaborations and to manufacture a Jon Burgerman product range. burger products are available worldwide and online.

Burgerman sometimes works in Nottingham and New York.
