Are you imaginative? In fact, everyone has it, and it is not limited to a single field! Regardless of creation or communication, having imagination is also an indispensable thing!
Jon Burgerman said: "In the process of graffiti, thinking and creation occur at the same time, and imagination is the best material." In his personal video channel, it is not difficult to see him fighting dullness with creativity in life, such as : Add a pair of eyes to the objects around you, trying to add imagination and interesting possibilities to the boring daily life.
Recently, Jon held a solo exhibition "New Friends" in Hong Kong. He boldly used colorful graffiti to create various characters on white wooden boards. The layers of colors dripped and merged, just like his inner world is full of rich imagination Likewise, adding color to a world of lockout through strong contrasting tones.
He tries to use art to change the world. Through the current world full of increasingly divided and destructive background, "New Friends" celebrates the differences of individuals and gathers audiences to enjoy and experience the joy of creativity and expression. In fact, whether children or adults, seeing Jon's colorful graffiti, will feel the emotional impact of his works.
In Hong Kong, we often worry about not having the space to be creative, and even think that imagination is something only children need. In fact, as long as you have the whims of the imagination, you may be able to easily find a solution, and your troubles will be solved. I hope everyone can, like Jon, try to open up a new world with simple imagination and creativity!
