Webb's is pleased to announce New Zealand's first exhibition by Ron English. English is widely considered to be one of the forefathers of modern street art, and, beginning with his ‘liberated’ billboards of the 1980s in which commercial billboards were illegally altered so that they broadcast political messages, his career has spanned and continued to evolve for more than three decades. Much like the work of contemporaries Banksy and Shepherd Fairey, with whom he has collaborated and exhibited, English’s influence is central to street art’s advancement from a practise focussed on lettering and graphic imagery to a conceptually focussed means of political expression.

As English’s reputation has grown, his unique imagery has continued to pervade contemporary culture. Notably, his hyperrealist depictions of McDonalds branding and advertising imagery were featured prominently in the documentary Super Size Me. Further, his work has graced numerous album covers, including The Dandy Warhol’s Welcome to the Monkey House and more recently, Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E. Works by English are held in the permanent collections of Whitney Museum, New York; Everhart Museum, Pasadena; Mauermuseum, Berlin; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Paris. English has recently held a public seminar at Museum of Modern Art, New York.
