The Godfather of Street Art Ron English New Artwork Exhibition -「English Translations」


「English Translations」: The World's First Stop of the Celebrated Frankster and the Godfather of Street Art Ron English is about to land in Shenzhen Q-plex.



“「English Translations」—— Ron English New Artwork Exhibition” is going to lift the veil on June 21, 2019 at Pop Life Art Space in Shenzhen Q-plex. The exhibition is comprised of 15 large oil  canvas paintings, 18 works on paper, 2 monumental sculptures and dozens of new toys, exclusives and art print releases. It is worthy of mentioning that 33 artworks in this exhibition are brand-new. Ron has also created 60 new songs that will serve as the soundtrack for the epic installations.



We are very excited to have Ron English, Show Lo and trendies with us in the VIP preview day on June 21. Not only will Ron release his joint-designed products with Show, but also Ron will have livestreaming sharing session with Tencent. The exhibition will be opened to the public from June 22 to July 14, and the fans could have the opportunities to see Ron English in the afternoon of June 22.



In his new series “English Translations”, Ron English reimagines icons of pop culture through the prism of his unique hyper surrealistic mind. The brush strokes of his old contemporary Jean Michael Basquiat morph into flames revealing an internal alien behind the expressionistic façade, an obsessively cute elephant grows monarch ears, evolution turns the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex into a forty foot dinosaur/chicken hybrid and mascots of cartoon culture grin with such abandon they reveal their inner selves. “English” becomes a language where everything is at once soothingly familiar and jarringly foreign.



“「English Translations」—— Ron English New Artwork Exhibition” is proudly powered by Pop Life, presented in association with Bense Artspace, and sponsored by Q-plex.



One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images, on the street, in museums, in movies, books and television. English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie “Supersize Me”, and Abraham Obama, the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents, an image widely discussed in the media as directly impacting the 2008 election. Other characters carousing through English’s art, in paintings, billboards, and sculpture include three-eyed rabbits, udderly delicious cowgirls and grinning skulls, blending stunning visuals with the bitingly humorous undertones of America’s Premier Pop Iconoclast.
