Real plasticky dystopian vibe: very 1990's. Pop art is easy to hate (for me), but I found myself settling into this. Discovering they were all paintings rather than photographs was a game-changer, as at first I thought he was just melting barbie dolls and taking photos of it. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0867197897, Hardcover)

STATUS FACTORY is a hardcover art book presenting new paintings from street art legend Ron English. In his paintings, English perverts and subverts the establishment, poking fun at religion, consumerism, and blind obedience to popular culture. He uses humor 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. Among reinterpretations of familiar characters like Ronald McDonald and Mickey Mouse, you'll find three-eyed rabbits, udderly delicious cowgirls, grinning skulls, and many more. In addition to over 180 images from his paintings, Status Factory includes over 100 photographs of English's street art installations, subverted billboards, and other public art. An afterword by the artist delves into his creative process, explaining how source materials are transformed into his riveting images. Luxuriously printed on heavy art paper, this large-format coffee table book showcases Ron English's art beautifully. A great addition to any art library focused on street art, pop surrealism, graffiti, and painting.
