4. Ron English
The legend of Ron English seems to grow by the year. In 2011, he seemed to have an exhibition every month (not limited to an exhibition at Post No Bills and a major solo showing at Corey Helford Gallery this fall). English's graffiti trip to Detroit also garnered attention, and out west he produced one of the world's largest murals for LA Freewalls. In short, Ron English continues to amuse and continues to permeate all facets of the art world. Toy releases and a collaboration with The Hundreds kept him in tune with the youth too.
We visited English at his Beacon, NY home too. Check that out here.
