U.K. born artist Jon Burgerman has risen to become a prominent figure in the recent boom of practitioners who traverse the disciplines of contemporary art, design, illustration and entrepreneurism. His award winning work can be seen globally from galleries to cinema and iPhone screens. A sense of British self-deprecation, dry humor and modern-day anxiety imbues his work along with an enthusiasm for salad.
Devising a series of artworks, mascots and sundries for the exhibition, Burgerman has invented a collection of sporting activities. Each event will have its own local sponsor, who will also be represented in the exhibition from the likes of The Empty Bottle, Very Best Vintage, Bite Café, Color Wheel Studio and more. The opening night will feature a series of actions that require audience participation, such as The Soda Pop Race, Vegetable Toss Off, Cheese Grating Racing and more.
The artwork surrounding the exhibition will include a series of paintings relating to the events and sponsors as well as referencing popular sporting actions and slogans. Also featured will be merchandise, multiple cut outs and medals designed by the artist.
With the help and support of Color Wheel Studio, The Inauguration will be held on Saturday July 21, 2012 at 6 pm sharp, The Opening Ceremonies will continue until 10:00 pm and the show will be on display through August at Pawn Works 1050 N. Damen Ave. Chicago, Illinois.
