United Kingdom, 1979


Jon Burgerman is a UK-born, New York-based artist who encourages improvisation and play through drawing and performance. He is a purveyor of doodles and is often credited and referred to as the leading figure in the popular “Doodle” art style.

His work straddles fine art, urban art and pop culture, and uses humour to reference and question his contemporary environment.

His aesthetic is ubiquitous and instantly recognisable, and exists in a multitude of forms, including canvases, large-scale murals (indoor and outdoor), sculpture, toys, clothing, design, prints and people (such as temporary tattoos and drawings).
