Yesterday, my design class took a feildtrip to our art gallery on campus where artwork by Ron English was being showcased. I had never heard of him before, and now I can't get him off my mind.
He's most known for his so called "vandalism" on billboards. He creates spoof advertising that doesn't lie to America and illegally posts them on billboards all over. He claims art isn't made to sit in a gallery for a few weeks. It's made to be seen and make a statement. And there is no doubt that Ron's art is made to be seen. I find it inspiring the risks he takes to share what he's passionate about with the world. His artwork has such meaning and is so incredibly well done. Here were a few of my favorite pieces.
