Curating LOVE MOVEMENT was one of the best experiences of my life. You may remember seeing Jon’s figures as a preview here. I’ve already pontificated about LOVE MOVEMENT plentifully on my own website, but I wanted to post that all of the work is now available online for purchase at StoreEnvy. Here is a direct link to Jon’s figures, Love Messes You Up & Broken-Hearted Bear. Check out this video from the art opening.
Jon Burgerman digs cats. To paraphrase an old adage, the proof is in the kibbles. Of his latest poster, he writes:
Do you like cats? What is your favourite cat? Here are my favourite cats, the ones I’ve met over the years and have left a lasting impression on me.
Via Jon’s Flickr, I’ve collected a few of his feline friends (see below), mostly those he encountered during his Brooklyn residency last summer. You can see some more cat action in this My American Summer montage video. You can get the Cats poster over at Burgerplex. It’s a “massive format portrait size 70×100 cm / 27.6×39.6″ high quality print on 230gsm uncoated art paper sent rolled in a a strong card tube for $21.56 USD. Click through for some cute overload.
Check out this video from the Kicks-n-Canvas show. We like when non-traditional art objects are given the fine art treatment. Cheers to SoleHeaven and Zero Cool Gallery for making this event happen. Love to see these end up as production footwear in our Sneakers category. Just sayin’.
This is kind of fun. The narrator makes a few good quips. I know this sort of thing probably makes many artists cringe, but the business of art is a reality! More on that process at http://sellmoreartonline.com.
Wondering what the heck Jon was doing in Bangalore? Doodling all over the world for AOL, which, despite what anyone under 20 might think, actually still exists! Even my super-stalking, um, sleuthing skills couldn’t get me into India, so I had to wait for the downlow from this press release by Sam Summerskill of Jon’s agency, Debut Art.
Jon Burgerman has been flying all over the world for the past couple of weeks painting huge murals for the guys at Aol. He’s been to New York, Dulles, back to the UK and then…. Bangalore where he is today.
So, i guess, gadzoiks for Jon Burgerman day (apparently what today, the 10th February, is being called around the Aol. offices.)
Massive thanks to Malcolm and Alicianne again for their continued support and all of the guys in Aol headquarters in Bangalore and the US who have been looking after Jon and making his stay a good one.
The following photos were taken around the world for AOL, and I’ve borrowed them from Debut Art’s Flickr Set (where you can find several more). The final, coloring-in photos, were taken today, in Bangalore. Jon also took over the AOL website with some digital doodles. You can find Debut Art’s original press release here. Click through for more photos. [UPDATE: Wondering where Jon got his Burger sweatshirt? Look here.]
Check out this new entry in the JBVLA produced by DEAD PXL. In this video interview, Jon discusses the past, present and future. Wow, as of this moment, Amir’s logged 64 videos in the JBVLA (and I just forwarded him another). Go grab a libation and kill an afternoon watching some.
