Street art pioneer Ron English is back with a new solo gallery show at the Allouche Gallery pop-up in the Meat Packing district in NYC entitled “Guernica”.  For this new show Ron has integrated pop culture icons with the iconic imagery derived from Pablo Picasso’s legendary anti-war painting “Guernica”.

English in his iconic style uses such pop culture figures as Ronald McDonald, Star Wars, The Incredible Hulk, The Simpsons, Peanuts, and many, many, more to re-interpret and update the Picasso classic.

For this gallery show English used oil and canvas on a grand scale.  Most pieces were large enough to cover an entire wall.  The paintings at this scale are so incredibly detailed that only a living master like english can deliver.

It’s always wonderful to see street art seamlessly transitioned from city walls and billboards to a high level gallery space.  Do yourself a favor and take a trip to the Meatpacking District in NYC and check out the amazing detail of these pieces in person.
