On Thursday night, AM attended the VIP opening of Ron English’s “Immortal Underground” at New York’s Opera Gallery. Nothing was spared as Ron’s infamous Cathy Cow Girl’s (courtesy of The Body of Art) arrived in a limo to kick off the opening night extravaganza. In attendance were many of NYC’s notables including Martha Cooper (interviewed), Aiko, Travis Louie (interviewed), Logan Hicks (interviewed), David Stoupakis, Fred Harper, Ally Hilfiger, Johanne Corno and Vincent Castiglia to name a few.
The solo was an accumulation of many of Ron’s styles we saw this year at our studio visit with him (here) – from his classic cow girls from Dr. Sketchy’s (covered) to his detailed comic collage style seen at Elms Lester (covered) to his iconic MC Supersize. Each piece was done with the exquisite precision that we have come to expect from Ron. This is a show that you should definitely make time to see if you’re in the NYC area. Check our coverage after the jump.
