Ron English – Street Art

Ron English is an American artist, who focuses on popular culture and highlighting the faults in big brand corporations often his work comes with a twisted anti corporate message.

The scene above has some parodies of street advertising campaigns that Ron English has created and pasted onto a street wall. They are  inspired by 2 large corporations: Coca Cola and 7/11 stores. Here Ron brings his message out into the public domain, using the streets to interact with his audience and exhibit his works. These pieces are witty and thought  out, with a clear anti-corporate message.

I find it admirable that he takes action on this matter and uses a corporation’s most powerful tools: advertising and brand identity against them to give off an impression that could seriously harm their reputation. Here English holds up a big mirror to society and encourages them to look a little closer at the consumerist culture that has shaped modern America
