“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.”

“Jon Burgerman’s images seem to have each been created in one burst of creative energy, his pen never leaving the paper once it has made contact until the image is complete. The result is that his drawings have a fresh immediacy that make them as fun as they are visually impactful. He refers to his work rather modestly as ‘doodles’ but really what he’s doing is creating his own distinctive artwork at every available opportunity – whether it’s on a pad of Post-Its just for fun, or on a larger scale in a variety of mediums for an enviable list of clients ranging from The Science Museum to Sky, Pepsi, Sony and Kidrobot.”
