Approaching the end of 2018 summer, APPortfolio is going to bring you one of the MOST magnificent shows of the year. We have been waiting for all this time to cooperate with the most talented American POP ART master “Ron English”. Finally everything we dreamed of have come together in this festival. This show (festival) is definitely going to break the stereotypes of how we see cartoon characters and POP culture.

This entire show is built and designed into “Street Art Style”. The colourful “Neon Light Tubes” will be throughout the entire venue that brought out the mysterious and energetic atmosphere for the show. YOHOOD’s main vision for the show is called “RENEW THE RULES” that is also the slogan of this event. The reason that it is called “RENEW THE RULES” is to break the previous regulations, giving fans a refreshing and unconventional experience. The series of FUN activities will be throughout the entire show from  8/31  to 9/2. Welcome to join one of the most “FASHIONABLE and APPEALING” event this year! Come and join fantastic

Ron English’s “RENEW THE RULES” show of 2018!

This year a RON ENGLISH ice cream van on site, part of the space built as a basketball court and the entrance will be a gallery space. Visitors and fans can come in site to take as many photographs as you want, have a bite of the ice cream, and play. There are many activities throughout this event just like an art carnival.

Let’s take a look at the HIGHLIGHTS of the curation

From APPortfolio for YOHOOD Shanghai 2018

  1. Ron English 11 ORIGINAL paintings: Ron English brought 11 of his epic art pieces and significant “lithography” art prints that we have been spending hours and hours of making are to the scene. There are several large-scale works. Once you enter the show you can see the artist’s original paintings.

(The meaning behind RON ENGLISH’s paintings: The artist traverses his cultural values into his works, inspiring people to question consumer capitalism at the same time inviting viewers to a series of  strong, unrealistic, grotesque presentations of his art, and a variety of offensive characters to tempt us to reveal the unknown truths in our culture and society.)

Artist Ron English ART Improvisation on the spot:

Ron English’s painting his newest artwork.

It is not a dream to see the artist’s deity creation on the spot! Our loved Ron English will be at YOHOOD for 3 days (The specific time will be announced). There will be a-15-meter long space for Ron English to paint. This area will be built seemingly as a small basketball court. Sitting on the wooden bench in the exhibition hall will make the audiences have an appeal of the New York street scene where Ron English currently lives. The kind of experience-based curatorial approach will make fans never forget this exciting moment.

Do you remember the image of “Teddy” and “Sock Monkey”? Hasn’t it stuck in our head? Ron English created a whole new irony and innovative way to show his fans these two characters. “Teddy Grin” looks cute but naughty, on the other hand, “Sock Monkey Grin” looks silly and fierce that both characters break our previous stereotypes. In the choice of color, the macaron colors of “Teddy” and “Sock Monkey” are specially selected by APPortfolio team and also the neon colors added to the background black makes these two skateboards stand out. It gives us a nightlife world that reflects the life that modern people escape to.

Size: 50x38cm

Material: Fabric

Composition: 100% cotton

Lining composition: 100% polyester fibre

Product description: The rabbit, called Ronnie, is one of the animals that ONLY survived after living in the picturesque paradise of “Delusionville”. It was the only animal in this place that tried to accept all contradictory belief systems, however, this lifestyle made it completely go insane.

Literally, the name of this artwork is called “Stunning Sun Flower.” Remember the myths of Clytie and Apollo, the most common meaning of sunflower is worship and loyalty. However, the signature style “Grin” has been used many times in Ron’s art. Do you think that you will need one potted plant in your home?

Ronnie and its radish are presented in an anthropomorphic way. The same contradictory visual literacy appears again in this product, three-eyed Ronnie and its beloved dead radish shows a radical style. The uniqueness of colour choices – beautiful sky blue of macaron colour and the low-colour grey as background colour lits up this amusing product.

Size: 50x30cm

Material: Fabric

Composition: 100% cotton

Lining composition: 100% polyester fiber

This “Melty Ronnnie Rabbit” cushion is an extra large ice

cream cone. It has two flavours. The bottom layer of ice cream is a skeleton image, and then the top layer is a pink Ronnie. This product is also based on the artist’s previous creation.
