Over the summer our technicians have been busy painting an exciting and vibrant new permanent artwork at the entrance to the Bonington Gallery. We invited alumnus, Jon Burgerman to design a series of large-scale murals that aim to reflect the creative processes, enjoyment and energy of the School of Art & Design.

His work oscillates somewhere between fine art, urban art and pop-culture, using humour to reference and question his contemporary milieu. Jon exhibits internationally and his work is also in permanent collections at the V&A Museum and the Science Museum in London. Burgerman studied BA (Hons) Fine Art at The Nottingham Trent University, graduating in 2001 with First Class Honours.
