Jon Burgerman

Brooklyn-based artist and NTU alumnus Jon Burgerman is dialing into Industry Week to talk to our students about his career and work.


ABOUT

Brooklyn-based artist Jon encourages mistakes, experiments and improvisation within his practice to allow for new, fun ways of making. His mission is to inspire creativity in others and to never know exactly what he will create next, drawing inspiration from a wide range of sources – animation, pop-art, music and abstract expressionism.

His artworks can be viewed in a number of institutions, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. He has been commissioned by brands that include Apple, Samsung, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, Huawei, Nike, Puma and The New York Times.

Since 2017, Jon has also become a prolific author, having several picture books published alongside a collection of creativity books (including It’s Great To Create published by Chronicle Books). In 2019 he opened his first museum show in Asia, entitled Fun Factory, a huge immersive, interactive exhibition at M Contemporary Museum in Seoul, South Korea.
