“Limited to only 300 pieces”. Ron English liberty grin empire
One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, Ron has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images, on the street, in museums, in movies, books and television. English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie “Supersize Me,” and Abraham Obama, the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents, an image widely discussed in the media as directly impacting the 2008 election. Other characters carousing through English’s art, in paintings, billboards, and sculpture include three-eyed rabbits, utterly delicious cowgirls and grinning skulls, blending stunning visuals with the bitingly humorous undertones of America’s Premier Pop Iconoclast.

In 2005 English began creating designer toy versions of his creatures and has been producing these collectibles ever since. He has produced over 50 different designer toys.
Ronnnie Rabbit was English’s first designer toy, produced in 2005 by Dark Horse. In 2013, he joined Slash to create a limited edition fiberglass bust of the image used for the Slash and Friends album artwork. He also joined singer Chris Brown to launch their “Dum English” toy; a 10-inch turquoise and pink Astronaut Star Skull.
In 2013, English collaborated with rock band Pearl Jam to produce “Falla Sheep”, a blind box line-up with seven color variants of 3.5 inch sheep in wolves’ clothing toys. These were sold in stores and also at shows during Pearl Jam’s 2013 tour.
