Jon Burgerman

Jon Burgerman (b. 1979, UK) is a purveyor of doodles. He is often credited and referenced as the leading figure in the popular 'Doodle' art style.

His work oscillates somewhere between fine art, urban art and pop-culture, using dry 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).

He likes pizza, watching dogs in the park (from a safe distance), playing board games and trying to live happily.

It's Great To Create

To make it short: this is a talk about Jon's work, his life, play, distraction, seeing things, feeling different and trying to be happy.

And I don't promise to much, if I tell you that I love his work and am always happy to see his inspiring talks anywhere around the world.
