WILLIAMSBURG WALKS

Northside Art takes place at Williamsburg Walks, the incredible takeover of Bedford Avenue from Metropolitan Avenue to North 12th Street in Williamsburg. Northside & Wburg walks close the street off from traffic and transform the thoroughfare into a public park with art installations, performances and a general vibe of summer relaxation. Budapest Pop up will bring you some arty treats you have never seen before. It will all be fun and games!
We bring you Jon Burgerman (b. 1979, UK) an award winning purveyor of doodles. 

Burgerman references and playfully questions popular culture in his work by using humour and arresting, colourful visuals. His work has an instantly recognisable aesthetic that exists across a multitude of forms including canvases, large scale murals, sculpture, toys, apparel, design, print and people (as tattoos and temporary drawings). 
His artworks are collected worldwide in several institutions including the Victoria and Albert Museum London. Commercial collaborations include work with Nike, Puma, Samsung, Pepsi, Coke, Levis, BBC, AOL, MTV and Rip Curl. Burgerman lectures about his practice at universities, festivals and events all over the world.
He encourages mistakes, 'quiet interventions’, experiments and unexpected occurrences within his practice to allow for improvisation and new ways of making.
It's Burgerman's belief that through playful, creative acts, Art can act as an agent to change the world, by being the catalysis to allow people to change their worlds.
