24 illustrators and imagemakers have created brand new artwork for a pop-up food and art exhibition being hosted at a greasy spoon in central London on June 27. Artists Andy Rementer, Chris Gray, Chrissie Macdonald, James Joyce, Holly Wales and Nishant Choksi are among the exhibitees at the event, entitled The Burgermat Show and curated by burger blogger Burgerac, where all the work will be displayed not on the walls but as disposable paper placemats, each signed by the artist…
Attendees to the ticketed event – one of a series of BurgerMonday food pop-ups run by Daniel Young of youngandfoodish.com – will be served gourmet burgers cooked up specially by chef Fred Smith of the Admiral Codrington pub, and encouraged to swap their placemat art with other diners in order to get the artwork they like the most.
Impressively, the tickets for the event sold out within 20 minutes of going on sale yesterday morning. However, there is still a chance to bag A2 versions of each artwork which are available to buy, each in a strict edition of 50 handstamped, Giclée prints, through website print-process.com. The full 24 prints will be available after the event on June 27, but in the meantime all the images that have been shown to press thus far are already available for pre-order. Here’s a look at some of the work:
This burger, created by Chrissie Macdonald and shot by John Short specially for the Burgermat Show is made from a variety of materials including wood and polystyrene.
