The Hong Kong public will be able to get up close with the works of celebrated pop artist Ron English when a new exhibition arrives in the territory this week.
English is renowned for his bold contemporary approach, fusing street art with pop surrealism, and is recognized as one of the leaders of the “Low Brow” art movement. In addition to producing several books and more than 50 figurines, the heretic also claims to have sabotaged well over 1,000 billboard adverts. Indeed, it was English who coined the term “POPaganda” to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones.
The new showcase, titled “East Meets West”, takes a look at how English developed his early craft. New works and figurines are featured, alongside a merchandise store where fans will be able to purchase exclusive goodies. You can preview them in the gallery above.
The free exhibition runs May 6 through May 14 and can be found at:
The Qube at PMQ
35 Aberdeen Street
Central Hong Kong
