Ron English on His Love of Confusing Other People - Compound Conversations

Hear it from the Godfather of Street Art himself.

By //

HYPEBEAST has teamed up with The Compound, a creative studio located in the birthplace of hip-hop, New York City, on Compound Conversations, a series of interviews in a surreal space curated by Set Free. In this latest episode, we briefly talk to the esteemed “Godfather of Street Art,” Ron English, on the relative cultural isolation of his childhood in the Midwest, his first exposure to the art world, and the moment where it occurred to him that his art could go anywhere, legally or not. Interspersed with shots of his “POPaganda” creations, watch the video above for an insight into the mind of the artist.
