New photographs by Ron English
World renowned Pop Surrealist and Street Artist Ron English will exhibit his first new series of photographs in 25 years. With a master’s degree in fine art photography, Ron began his career in the early 1980s as part of the Fabricated to be Photographed movement that included Cindy Sherman, Sandy Skoglund and Nic Nicosia. Many of his most famous billboard takeovers, environmental interventions and trompe l'oeil art on the street, pieces that established him as a pioneer of the global street art phenomenon were actually byproducts of his staged photography in urban environments.
In 1986 Ron traded his camera for a canvas and became one of the founders of the pop surrealist movement and has been known ever since as an oil painter and street artist.
Although never exhibited publicly as standalone pieces, Ron’s photography has always remained an integral part of his artistic process. Ron creates elaborate sets that he photographs as the bases for his paintings, and for the first time he will exhibit these studies as limited edition photographs.
