Opening Reception Saturday, November 19, 2011 from 7‑10pm
On View November 19 ‑ December 10, 2011
On Saturday, November 19, Corey Helford Gallery is pleased to present “Seasons In Supurbia,” the highly anticipated solo exhibition of original new works by Ron English, renowned street artist and master pop surrealist painter.
Considered one of the most prolific artists of our generation, English is the father of POPaganda, a term he coined to define his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, creating a visual language of evolution. Recognized for his stunning technique and inventive use of color, English’s artistic presence continues to evolve from illegal street murals to movie screens, where he is crowned “the Greatest Living Artist” in Morgan Spurlock’s 2011 film “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold.”
Two days after the sight of flaming cars and anti-Semitic graffiti horrified a heavily Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, residents, elected officials and others took part in a march on Sunday against hatred and intolerance.
The police were still investigating the burning of three parked cars on Ocean Parkway and the spray-painting of swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs on benches and the initials “K.K.K.” on the side of a van. The police are treating the episode as a hate crime. No arrests had been made by late Sunday afternoon.
