This is a comprehensive survey of Ron English's art, covering 20 years of his career, from staged photography to neo-surrealist oil paintings, from street art to culture jamming. An important look at the work of an artist who has been at the forefront of movements in photography, painting, activist art, and underground music. One aspect of Ron English's work involves 'liberating' commercial billboards with his own messages. Frequent targets of his work include Joe Camel, McDonalds, and Mickey Mouse. As the "celebrated prankster father of agit-pop," he wrangles carefully created corporate iconographies so that they are metaphorically turned upside down, and are used against the corporations they are meant to represent.
