With a 35 year career of billboard hijacks already under his belt and a recent showing at the prestigious Elms Lesters Painting Rooms (studio visit and opening),Â Ron English’s career is going in only one direction: up.Â And in this case, quite literally, Ron has taken his art to a whole new level by spelling out the word “cloud”, in clouds, five times over the NYC skyline.Â Video after the jump.
Gary Baseman, Ron English, David Horvath, and Joe Ledbetter gathered together for a special live-drawing event during STGCC (Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention).Â These are all artists we follow here at AM, but are recognized as toy designers in this setting, so fans were out in full force to watch them draw and reprise some of their favorite characters.

AM recently attended the festive opening of Jonathan LeVine Gallery’s summer group show, entitled Beach Blanket Bingo.

Ron English (studio visit) andÂ 2esae and SKI ofÂ Destroy and Rebuild rocked downtown San Diego’s Wonderhaus with their live painting session during the launch party forÂ Planet Illogica, a social networking website focused on the creative arts community. Utilizing the bodies of some gorgeous models as their canvases, Ron transformed his female subjects with his pop-surrealist touch while the boys from Destroy and Rebuild gave them a little NYC flavor, hitting their subjects with throw-ups and some sick designs. Complementing the fine and graffiti art were Cirque […]
