We welcome back one of our earliest artist's to join the 1xRUN team as Jon Burgerman returns with Alien a vibrant 6-color screenprint which highlights his time spent as a British artist living in New York City.
"The original images for this piece were hand drawn on paper earlier this year. Then each was scanned into Photoshop and recomposed to form the print we have here. It is sequel print to my last 1xRun print ‘City Girl’. That print was about urban dwelling, the noise and chaos, following a trip to Mexico. This print continues that theme and is more about me, a British artist, living in New York. I’m the alien, or maybe everything around me is alien. It’s confusing and difficult to tell sometimes." - Jon Burgerman
