About Ron

Ron English is arguably one of the most recognizable and prolific artists today. He coined the term popaganda, to describe his own signature mash-up style of high and low cultural touchstones.

Among his vast and fast-growing arsenal of original characters is Abraham Obama. A fusion of America’s 16th and 44th president, this character is rumoured to have had a positive impact on the Obama 2008 campaign.

Three-eyed rabbits, udderly delicious cowgirls, grinning skulls and countless others have earned English a reputation for blending stunning visuals with the bitingly humorous undertones of America’s Premier Pop Iconoclast.
