Ron English is a prolifically skilled oil painter known as “The Godfather of Street Art.” He has bombarded the global landscape with unforgettable images on the street, in museums, in movies, book and television and is considered by many to be one of the more skilled renderers of his generation.
His dominant style is characterized by extreme photo realism, striking use of secondary color and appropriation of pop imagery. Indeed, Ron English has appropriated many well-known images and characters from pop culture, reworking them into his own signature images. Ron English is also known for using the guerrilla method of communication “Culture Jamming”, which involves modifying or hijacking advertising billboards to foster progressive change in society. Ron English often posts his own hand-painted designs over existing ads to subvert their message.
