Skin Deep: Post-Instinctual Afterthoughts On Psychological Portraiture,

Ron English coined the term “POPaganda” to describe his trademark fusion of high and low imagery, mixing superheroes and comic strips with art history iconography in his prolific and ubiquitous paintings, billboards, and sculptures. English has imagined a vast (and still growing) roster of characters, including MC Supersized, his obese fast-food mascot that was featured in the documentary Supersize Me (2004), and Abraham Obama, a mash-up of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents. He is best known for combining expert draftsmanship with a cynical, humorous critique of American culture.
