Part of My Way Portfolio released by English in 2004.

Ron English has become known for the re-appropriation of pop images like that of Marilyn Monroe and Mickey Mouse, among others, in the ongoing project he calls “POPaganda.” Besides being his most well-known print, the aesthetic and palette in this is very representative of the spirit of English's work—cheeky and playful using Mickey’s face as nipple covers for the buxom icon. English has exhibited throughout North America and Europe, and has work in several public collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. —Courtesy of Julien’s Auctions

About Ron English

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.

American, b. 1959
