NEWTEN’S PORCELAIN PANTHER EPISODE#003 - JON BURGERMAN
In the third episode of Newten’s Porcelain Panther, Jim and Ben were joined by artist Jon Burgerman for tea, chocolate caramel Digestive biscuits, music and CLASS A chat. Jon and his energetic talent now reside in beautiful Brooklyn, New York, so while the Burgermeister was in the Big Smoke we invited him to brave the London transport system (in the rain) and come and speak with us. What follows is our most frenetic and lively podcast yet! (NB- Michael Landly created the work ‘Burn what what you love…’ not Jeremy Deller. We were all excited and confused. Sorry)
Jon Burgerman’s distinctive aesthetic has been seen all over the world from galleries to T-shirts, toys, books, shoes and video games…… even napkins and pizzas. His vibrant, energetic and colourful flare is instantly recognisable and a joy to behold.
The following conversation took place on a rainy Monday afternoon in October round Jim’s Kitchen table. (No alcohol was used in the recording of this podcast.)
