Ron English

27 May

What can I say about Ron English that hasn’t been said before!? God’s knows. All I know is that I have lots of respects and admiration for his guts and creative force which never seems to slow down but only accelerate. working for many years, making fantastic mind blowing artworks and displaying on the street while fighting against main stream media and commercial manipulation, all hail the king Ron.

Here is what Wiki has to say:

Ron English (born 1959) is an American contemporary artist who explores popular brand imagery and advertising. His signature style employs a mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, including comic superhero mythology and totems of art history, to create a visual language of evolution. He is also widely considered a seminal figure in the advancement of street art away from traditional wild-style lettering and into clever statement and masterful trompe l’oeil based art. He has created illegal murals and billboards that blend stunning visuals with biting political, consumerist and surrealist statements, hijacking public space worldwide for the sake of art since the 1980s.
