Preview: Ron English’s “Popagandastan” at Corey Helford Gallery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

One of the first to make a name for himself as a street artist and Pop Surrealist painter, Ron English will open a solo show at Corey Helford Gallery in LA this Saturday, October 26, titled “Popagandastan.” Like the title of the show suggests, English’s new paintings take his viewers into what could be its own country of characters. The three-eyed rabbit, Ronnnie Rabbbit, is English’s protagonist — a neurotic character whose brain simultaneously argues both sides of every argument. Then there are the cowgirls, who represent sexuality and nourishment, The Quacks, the charlatans and drug dealers, and many other personas. One does not need to know English’s elaborate backstories, however, to appreciate the kaleidoscopic colors and masterfully painted characters in his intricate works. Take a look at a sneak peek of “Popagandastan” below.
