Ron ENGLISH

b.1966

Born in Dallas, Texas in 1966 Pop iconoclast Ron English paints, infiltrates, reinvents and satirizes modern culture and its mainstream visual iconography on canvas, in song, and directly onto hundreds of pirated billboards. English exists spiritually somewhere between a cartoon Abbie Hoffman and a grown-up, real-life Bart Simpson, delivering a steady stream of customized imagery laden with strong sociopolitical undertones, adolescent boy humor, subversive media savvy, and Dali-meets-Disney technique. Dedicated to finding the sublime in the everyday and breaking the momentum of the didactic approach to art and life, English offers up an alternative universe where nothing is sacred, everything is subverted, and there is always room for a little good-natured fun Exhibitions : 1989 : Stockwell Gallery, New-York 1991-1992 : Gallery Stendhal, New-York 1994 : Museum of Contemporary Art, Washington DC 1998 : The Alternative Museum, New-York 1999 : Masachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Boston 1999 : MTV, New-York 2001 : Opera Gallery, New-York
