Ron English’s Jakarta Popaganda Party
“The God Father of Street Art” RON ENGLISH was in Indonesia for the “Jakarta Popaganda Party“ back in mid-May @ RUCI Art Space, and we have a video and as well select images of the one-night-only event to share!
Presented by Pop Life Entertainment, a variety of Mr English’s art was on show, along with a “lifestyle” selection of apparel, bag, umbrella and skateboard, and of course his toys including the upcoming “Cereal Killers mini figures” (available for pre-order).
Another exceeding interesting item was the “Ah Hok" with "McSupersize Me” painting! I am unsure if anything shown here is still available to purchase, so perhaps enquire with ruciart.com … meanwhile, PICTURES!

English's most renowned image is of the obese Ronald McDonald, Mc Supersized, from the 2004 documentary Super Size Me.
