Ron English Art- Gotham Geek Girl – (Toy Fair New York 2019)

 

I had the opportunity to hang with creative genius Ron English at this year’s North American International Toy Fair at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Ron had a huge setup at the Toy Tokyo booth where he discussed his collection, collaborations, his own unique characters and his Delusionville (rock-opera) CD set which features episodes for all his little characters played by different singers. (Big thank-you to the Toy Tokyo crew and Television Toy Stories)

Ron English is an American contemporary artist known for his street art, fine art and “offensive” designer toys; Ron explores brand imagery and advertising and “intends his culture jamming technique to inspire people to question consumer capitalism. English does this by using his over emphasized, grotesque, and to some, offensive, characters to intrigue the consumer, luring them in to reveal the truth behind the product.”
