Jon Burgerman’s American Summer

Jon Burgerman GRNYNot sure how great UK artist Jon Burgerman‘s summer in NYC was this year given the inclement weather, but at least he also got to spend some time out in LA where (500) Days of Summer isn’t just a movie, it’s a way of life.  Anyway, if you are unlucky enough to be trapped in the swampy apple this month, Giant Robot’s NY gallery will be exhibiting the creative results of Burgerman’s summer in America starting August 15.  GRNY is one of the best places in this city to find affordable original art, because it’s actually super well-curated and not some art school students’ free-for-all.  A lot of now-famous artists like Kozyndan (now collaborating with Puma) and the folks behind the Uglydolls owe a lot to Giant Robot for their early successes.  I’ve discovered some of my favorite artists at this gallery (as well as their galleries in LA & SF) over the years, and you should too.  Can’t fully vouch for Burgerman’s show cus I haven’t seen it yet, but if it’s anywhere near as awesome as this hand drawn font he did for Hype for Type recently, it’s sure to be a smashing time.  Opening reception: Saturday, August 15 at 6:30pm
