Ron English is an American contemporary artist who explores and satirizes 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. Culture jamming is one contemporary art aspect of English’s work; the artist is known for 'liberating' commercial billboards with his own art messages.
English is also widely considered a seminal figure in the street art and pop surrealism movements, transitioning traditional wild-style lettering into clever statements and masterful contemporary art. His characters are forms of ‘POPaganda,’ and include the recognizable MC Supersized mascot from the award-winning documentary, Supersize Me. His work can be found on the street, TV and album covers, and in museums, movies and books.
