This sticker by Jon Burgerman shows a surreal cartoon character. The visual language employed is typical of the illustrator’s work.

Stickers like these are a part of the street art phenomenon, usually stuck on walls alongside stencil work and tag graffiti in urban areas. The simplicity and cheapness of the medium makes it attractive for young artists, and stickers crop up not only in graffiti sites but on buses and tube trains. Twenty-first-century psychedelia, demented cartoon characters, recycled film stars and a wild variety of visual references come together in a visual riot.
