RePost: Ron English and Chris Brown Toy Shop (dailydujour)

Seen: Ron English x Chris Brown Live Painting

May 3rd, 2012 — by Jack in Shows – On Wednesday evening, Corey Helford Gallery hosted a private one-night event featuring Ron English and pop star Chris Brown. The pair painted live on a large fiberglass version of their collaborative Dum English vinyl art toys (Made by Monsters) released earlier in the day at Toy Art Gallery on Melrose. The figure design is based on English’s conception of Stardom as a groundbreaking yet isolating experience, akin to that of an Astronaut. A small art exhibit featuring new English paintings based around the Astronaut toy character as well as Brown’s retro street art paintings complimented the live painting.
