In his paintings, English perverts and subverts the establishment, poking fun at religion, consumerism, and blind obedience to popular culture. He uses humour as a wake-up call, and renders it with meticulous brush strokes. Ron English populates alternate versions of The Last Supper' and 'Guernica' with cartoon characters, drops camouflaged clowns on dinosaurs, and births incredible creatures from his fertile imagination. In addition to over 180 images from his paintings, Status Factory includes over 100 photographs of English's street art installations.'
