Ron English ✖ Culture Jammin

Ron English is a contemporary artist that’s been blending classic brands and imagery along with current pop-culture since the early 80s. Only as of lately have I taken notice of his work in the street art scene. His guerrilla semiotics approach intended to expose apparently questionable political assumptions behind commercial culture in a colorful way grabs the attention of viewers. English uses common tactics including re-figuring logos, fashion statements, and product images as a means to challenge the idea of "what's cool" along with assumptions about the personal freedoms of consumption.
