Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, ep 29: Ron English on Art, Activism and Popaganda, Live from DesignerCon
It's rare that you can sit down with one artist who represents so much of a cultural shift that you can't easily define where to start with their impact. Ron English is that artist. From street art, pop surrealism, activism, political art, public interventions, performance art, music, vinyl toys... the list could go on, but Ron English has played a major roll in shaping the directions in which contemporary art could and has gone over the last 4 decades.
The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast sat down with English at DesignerCon in sunny Southern California in mid-November 2019 for a wide-ranging (thank you iced Americanos!) conversation about not only the influential career he has had, but how the contemporary political climate has helped and hindered his art practice. Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco, who worked with English on a Political Art issue back in 2012, sits back and let's the artist ruminate on Trump, street art and how DesignerCon has taken the baton for underground art expressions.
