Back in business on the Bowery, POP International Gallery is satiating the street art buds with a new virtual show featuring the “Godfather of Street Art,” Ron English. From the release:

Pop international Galleries is thrilled to premiere Ron English with brand new original works on paper and select limited editions. The POPaganda on Paper exhibition will be in a virtual gallery format available on the on Pop International’s POP SHOP.

Delusionville – Ron’s picturesque utopia, somewhere down a rabbit hole – the town’s motto being “If you believe, it doesn’t have to be true” has never been more of a reality than now! America’s Premier Pop Iconoclast reminds us to take a break, while embracing life with a sense of humor and a voice to connect us all.

Ron English last made a huge splash on the Bowery back in 2015, when his token “Temper Tot” graced the Bowery Mural Wall.

Mark your calendars. Peace.
