Ron English

I discovered Ron English through the movie Supersize Me, which is about a man who eat McDonald's for 30 days. In the movie Ron English's artwork is shown (the second picture is an example of one shown in the film). His artwork is quite interesting to me because he protrays what he sees in his life. In the movie English talks about how all he sees is fastfood and advertisments, so that where he gets his inspiration from. This is a sinister if you ask me if you take a look at his artwork. A lot of his artwork show the corruption and the bad side effects of today's media and culture. He shows McDonalds with a negative connotation and a lot about the corrupting effects it has on children (as shown by the last piece).
