Ron English is a contemporary pop artist who explores popular brand imagery and advertising. One aspect of his work involves ‘liberating’ commercial billboards with his own messages. Ron English can be considered the “celebrated prankster father of agit-pop”, who wrangles carefully created corporate iconographies so that they are turned upside down, and are used against the very corporation they are meant to represent. He takes inspiration from Andy Warhol and references him in his work. His many influences include Andy Warhol, KISS and various cartoons.
