Her work was subsequently bought by Charles Saatchi and shown in the major 1997 Sensation exhibition, which brought Britart into the establishment, as it was hosted by the Royal Academy, London, before touring abroad. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1991, and in 1993 for the Austrian Eliette Von Karajan Prize for Young Painters. She was commissioned by Tate Modern to create a 10 metre triptych Shadowland for the restaurant there in 2002.

NEW SLASH ALBUM COVER BY RON ENGLISH

The new album from Slash released this week features the ironic style of work from Ron English.

English is a contemporary pop artist who explores popular brand imagery and advertising. His signature style employs a mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, including comic superhero mythology and totems of art history, to create a visual language of evolution.

He is also widely considered a seminal figure in the advancement of street art away from traditional wild-style lettering and into clever statement and masterful trompe l’oeil based art. He has created illegal murals and billboards that blend stunning visuals with biting political, consumerist and surrealist statements, hijacking public space worldwide for the sake of art since the 1980s.
