Contemporary artist and master subvertiser, Ron English, has collaborated with singer/songwriter Chris Brown to create the Dum English astronaut series, a line of vinyl toys (see astronaut above), necklaces and sculpture. Ron is well known for his street art aesthetic and commentaries on corporate branding—his work incorporates many iconic figures tied to advertising and marketing campaigns of Fortune 500 companies (see Mr. McD, above). Ron and Chris worked together previously on the cover art for Chris Brown’s 2011 album, F.A.M.E. (above).
Look for the vinyl toys at specialty shops like KidRobot, the necklaces at retail stores, and the sculpture at galleries.
