From July 8 through August 8, 2021, Praise Shadows Art Gallery will host the first solo exhibition in Boston by New York-based artist Jon Burgerman. In addition, the artist will be on site painting a mural for the gallery, which will be used to hang new canvases, works on paper, and other items.
Eye Candy creates works in a variety of media, including sketching, painting, and three-dimensional collectibles and books, to bring the world of Burgerman's characters to life.
Burgerman's ideas are frequently amusing, intended to make him laugh or divert his attention away from outside stresses. This was especially noticeable during the 2020 shutdown.
Jon Burgerman (born 1979 in Birmingham, United Kingdom) has been a working artist for almost two decades. His instantly recognizable art has been shown in galleries, museums, and even the White House. His work can be found in museums around the world, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
“Art is my route of escape, not only from the world around me but the anxieties inside of me,” says the artist. “I wanted to create a joyful, colourful space for people to visit, that shares how I managed to cope with the lockdown by focusing my attention on play and creativity. Hopefully visitors will come away with some of that energy and feel creatively inspired themselves.”
