Ron English: Brand Royalty

September 18, 2021October 19, 2021

Allouche Gallery is proud to present Ron English: Brand Royalty, featuring the inaugural debut of twenty new paintings by the contemporary Pop and Street artist. Brand Royalty examines the evolving social semiotic flow in advertising, branding, inculcation and the artistic process. This new collection of works reappropriates signature imagery from Picasso, Warhol and Basquiat in a symbiotic remix with English's own iconic characters reallocating intent and meaning to construct a new narrative of creation and conflict. Paying homage wtih playful repurpose, English layers graffiti with the language of signs in old master oil technique, giving agency to his own characters and symbols to graft new language upon established iconography, forming call and response dialogue with the radical masters of 20th century pop to question the nature and direction of illusion/delusion.
