Giant Robot is proud to host My American Summer, an art show featuring new work by Jon Burgerman.

Working across a variety of media that includes drawing, painting, print, animation, large-scale murals, and toy design, the U.K. artist has built a strong reputation through his unique and colorful artworks of swooping, intertwining lines, and hyper-emotional characters. A sense of British self-deprecation, dry humor, and modern-day anxiety imbues his work, which retains a hand-made, hand-drawn quality. In 2008 his art was showcased in Pens Are My Friends, a 300-page monograph published by IdN.

My American Summer will feature works that have been made during Burgerman's nearly three-month visit to America (in Los Angeles and, mainly, New York City). Most are drawings on paper, while others are unique, three-dimensional versions of his observations on his Brooklyn Hipsters, hand-made by plush expert, The Felt Mistress. The work plays with notions of being a tourist, cliched outsider observations, and how some cultural differences are now homogenized in most major cities.

A reception for the artist will be held from 6:30 to 10:00 on Saturday, August 15. For more information about Burgerman, GRNY, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
