Jay Jay Burridge studied Fine Art Sculpture at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design. For his degree show he made a 40-foot-long, slot together, self-assemble dinosaur skeleton out of MDF. In 1994 he took over from the legendary children’s TV presenter Tony Hart writing and co-presenting the TV show SMart for the BBC.
He left SMart in 2003 to turn his attention to commercial art, working with companies including Levis and Sony. In the summer of 2010 he returned to his beloved dinosaurs and exhibited his Supersaurs sculptures in a one-man show in Beverly Hills. The 8,000 sq.ft space was filled with nine full-sized Supersaurs. Along with his friend, the chef Jamie Oliver, they created the Dinersaur Diner, situated in the heart of Piccadilly Circus in London.
