The White Walls project quickly became about challenging artists to go beyond their comfort zone. Jon Burgerman was no exception having never presented his notorious characters at this scale. Unlike ‘Ackers’ Jon did not enjoy the sunshine instead experienced typical torrential rain and cold.
Like any good tale of triumph we experienced heartache on the final day as we found the paint had ran giving all the characters expressions of sorrow. Not to worry though we powered through to complete the wall and it now stands as one of the Yards favourites.
Jon now resides in New York where he is probably still haunted by the memories of painting this wall. We’re again stoked to have his biggest characters in our back yard.
