Fresh and Now! First Drawer Down collaborates with NYC-based artist Jon Burgerman for the Hot Diggity Dog Pool Float. Guaranteed to bring the party to your pool!
Stemming from the artist’s vision of having a float in the iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Third Drawer Down's collaboration with Burgerman turns one of the artist's (in)famous character doodles into this witty inflatable object bringing the dream one step closer.
As Jon says, “It’s quite hard not to smile when presented with a humongous hot dog balloon pool float! I hope everyone enjoys splashing around with it.”
Height: 1.6m / 63"
Packaged in a gift box
Please note: each Hot Diggity Dog is unique, due to it’s hand-drawn and handmade nature, so some variation can occur in colour and seams.
About Jon Burgerman:
Jon Burgerman (b. 1979 UK) is a New York-based British artist whose works have been acquired by prestigious public collections such as London's Victoria and Albert Museum and the OÖ-Kultur museum in Linz, Austria. His art has been described by critics as “goofy, bright, and intuitive, focused on the visceral energy of play as a tenet of communication”
Burgerman’s highly distinctive fuzzy-edged characters in day-glo bright pinks, yellows, greens and blues epitomise the paradoxes of contemporary life. Their seemingly simple googly eyes betray a range of emotional complexities and anxieties, with comically distressed expressions and collapsing forms underlined by titles such as Dualist, Fortitude and Chameleon (2022).
