ABOUT THE ART
We are back with Staple Design and Ron English. The American pop iconoclast popularized by his signature fusion of varying cultural touchstones features themes from current pop icons to past historical art figures. English once again lends us a touch of his signature skull grin on The Pigeon, this time in a mono color-way reminiscent of the bird it was based on.
Ron English (born 1966) 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.
