ART WYNWOOD TONY GOLDMAN LIFETIME ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENT AWARD DINNER HONORING RON ENGLISH

This year, the fair is pleased to honor artist, Ron English. Ron English coined the term “POPaganda” to describe his trademark fusion of high and low imagery, mixing superheroes and comic strips with art history iconography in his prolific and ubiquitous paintings, billboards, and sculptures. English has imagined a vast (and still growing) roster of characters, including MC Supersized, his obese fast-food mascot that was featured in the documentary Supersize Me (2004), and Abraham Obama, a mash-up of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents. He is best known for combining expert draftsmanship with a cynical, humorous critique of American culture. The Award will be presented during an elegant four-course wine dinner at Boulud Sud, 255 Biscayne Blvd Way, Miami. 



"POPAGANDA" POP-UP SHOP
Ron English’s Popaganda brand evolved from the artist’s signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones into his uniquely personal visual vocabulary. Popaganda has been at the vanguard of collectible culture, with highly sought after limited editions releases of art figures, apparel, pins and patches, headgear and more. The popaganda pop-up booth will be selling a mix of Popaganda gear and collectible figures.
