Burgers on walls
Burger-loving Londoners with a penchant for graphic art are in for a treat. The Burgermat Show at Beach London's gallery and shop will showcase 24 burger-themed artworks, each created by a different image maker. Contributors to the show include Andy Rementer, Chrissie Macdonald, Crispin Finn, Holly Wales, James Joyce, Rob Flowers, Jon Boam, Malika Favre and Nishant Choksi...
The artworks originally appeared in the form of printed paper placemats in late June at a BurgerMonday pop-up restaurant event organised by Daniel Young of Young & Foodish in collaboration with a burger blogger by the name of Burgerac. However, this is the first time the artwork will be seen in a gallery context.
As well as the artwork on show, Burgerac and Beach London have worked together to produce a number of very limited edition Burgermat Show paper placemat packs. And what fetching placemats these artworks make:

@Mark — Ironically, isn't he a vegetarian?
Love Nichant's submission – looks like something you'd see in Jack Rabbit Slim's.
