Pop surrealist Ron English recently erected a massive pair of sculptures in China. But shortly after installation, the giant-sized MC Supersized and Liberty Grin characters faced an issue. “Although the statues, produced by Poplife, were legally sanctioned, local authorities ordered their removal shortly after installation, citing concerns about SCALE!!!” the artist wrote. On Wednesday morning, they were up, but by 10 p.m. that evening, they were gone. English was last featured on here.
