A new exhibit will be held this fall at Pop International Galleries. Ron English will be premiering his works at the gallery at 195 Bowery Street (at Spring Street) in Manhattan. The show will run from September 17 through October 15 at the gallery.
Who is Ron English?
Ron English, known as The Godfather of Street Art, is one of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive. He is credited with graffiti’s transition from a sub-cultural form of popular expression, to the decorative, narrative murals seen around the world today. Amongst Ron’s innovations is “culture jamming”, the act of modifying or hijacking advertising billboards.
English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters.
Pop international Galleries is thrilled to premiere Ron English with brand new original works on paper and select limited editions. The “POPaganda” on Paper exhibition will be in a virtual gallery format available on Pop International’s POP SHOP.
During these tenuous times, English has continued to inspire and create thought-provoking works, while overcoming his own personal bout with COVID-19. Delusionville – Ron’s picturesque utopia, somewhere down a rabbit hole – the town’s motto is “If you believe, it doesn’t have to be true” has never been more of a reality than now! America’s Premier Pop Iconoclast reminds us to take a break while embracing life with a sense of humor and a voice to connect us all.
Ron English was recently featured in The Guardian. English made a series of interesting and unique face masks and you can see the article here.
