The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last two years despite all the dispruptions from the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations and am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Please note also that USPS shipping estimates only include insurance for up to a $50 value.  If you want full insurance please let me know and I will charge it separately.
Please stay safe!

Ron Burman

About the Artist

Self-taught artist Ron Burman makes bright, figurative paintings and drawings executed on canvas and found materials such as architect’s renderings, cardboard, and wood. His inspirations range from his aunt Joan—who made Pop art in her basement during the 1960s—to Jean Dubuffet, Joan Miró, and Pablo Picasso, to the Brazilian artist Héctor Julio Páride Bernabó (better known as Carybé), to Jean-Michel Basquiat. His work, like the work of Carybé and Basquiat, is a combination of raw and cooked: the style is exuberant and unmediated, while the colors and compositions have an unexpected elegance and graphic punch. Informal but not self-consciously primitive, Burman’s art is bold, unpretentious, and honest.

Burman was born in Philadelphia in 1965 and raised in Philadelphia and Jacksonville, Florida. After earning a BA from Florida State University in Tallahassee, he moved to New York City in 1987. His work has been included in exhibitions at Marcia Weber Art, Montgomery, Alabama; Gallery Art 54, New York; and Yard Dog Gallery, Austin, Texas. Burman is included in the source book Self-Taught, Outsider, and Folk Art: A Guide to American Artists, Locations and Resources by Betty-Carol Sellen with Cynthia J. Johnson (McFarland & Company, 2000). He lives in Manhattan with his wife and two children.
