A man who’s retained his artistic sensibility while captivating those in the world of fashion, toy design and many more, Ron English‘s work has earned accolades in a number of genres. Best known for his POPaganda series, English is known to blend together high and low cultural tones, melding pop figures and superheros with iconography from art history. Obese fast-food mascot featured in hit film Super Size Me and the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th presidents in Abraham Obama are just several examples of English’s mind-bending work. A quick glance at HYPEBEAST’s archives shows his relevance in our culture, from collaborations with PUMA, The Hundreds, to the myriad of striking sculptures that make satirical commentary at politics and culture, English has harnessed himself as one of the most prolific pop artists of today. For his Essentials, we see a colorful selection of items from past projects, alongside the essentials tools — spray paint and paint brush — that transcends the artist from the streets to the gallery.
