Interon

One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, New York-based painter, designer and street artist Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images, on the street, in museums, in movies, books, television, and album covers. English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, to create a hilarious visual language that turns advertising into “subvertizing” and parody into illumination.

Would you like this interviewtf more if it had another title, like “No, Sir-iously,” or “’Have you explained your pupils to the cloud?’ I asked my ex-mom. But she was without vigor, she just stayed very calm and revised myhermy strangeness over and over again”?

RE

I would like it better if it had no title, I mean who titles an interview?

DA

You don’t have to be gay to find penises fascinating. The comedy „Superbad,“ for instance, features some funky dickophilia moments. What do you think about enhancing (or encocking) classic films the way you enhance (or encock) newsies? Oskar Schindler smoking a dickarette, for fuck’s sake?

RE

I think it would be funny if a dick sucked the egg out of a woman rather than injecting sperm. Then the fetus would mature in the man’s ball sack.

Bonus question: What’s your take on the following 8 Nonsemes?

In quantum field-zag hypertime
a laser kyte emerges.
Let it rise high, high,
but don’t forget to include a pair of gallows.

Always close your wishes.
Whoever opens one,
should resort to distortion immediately.
Requests, however, are fine.

Glamorous Wha_ever
staring at me from around the clock.
As I take a closer look,
it’s just a silly old compiler of drag.

Stepped in ointments and pies.
We know how to distinguish
a coma hole
from grandma’s °.

You like something? –
Praise it!
Don’t like something? –
Bite it!

RE
