ORIGINAL GRIN ART OF RON ENGLISH HC
(W) Ron English (A/CA) Ron English
Through his highly subversive art Ron English (b. 1959) has bombed the global landscape with striking and often unsettling imagery. He coined the term" POPaganda" to describe his signature and darkly satirical renderings of corporate branding icons. His work is populated with a vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters such as MC Supersized; the obese fast-food mascot featured in the movie Supersize Me
; and Abraham Obama, which fused America's 16th and 44th Presidents. This book is the first complete retrospective of English's work, compiling his paintings, illustrations, toys, sculpture, street art, and "agit-pop." Additionally, it contains a lengthy and comprehensive interview with the artist conducted exclusively for this publication.
