The annual Five Points Festival Designer Toy and Comic Show is coming up this weekend, June 1st and 2nd, and I am very excited to be attending for my second year! Coincidentally, I happened to walk by the above mural, located on Allen Street, a few weeks ago, unaware that it was originally created to honor the first-ever Five Points Fest, back in May of 2017. Apparently, the owners of the Allen Hotel reactivated a relationship with the Little Italy Street Art (LISA) Project  to bring street artist KaNO to the corner of Allen and Rivington Street, and this 40-foot mural was the result! Sweet!

Clutter Media Group launches a new online experience as they join forces with internationally famed artist Ron English. One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, Ron English’s rebranded website – www.popaganda.com – features a full art gallery, up to date news and a full service webstore with exclusive signed merchandise designed by the artist.

POPaganda is the ultimate online destination for Ron English’s rabid fans, collectors and admirers. On Thursday June 28, 2012 POPaganda is releasing a brand new color variant of FAT TONY, English’s satirical jab at over-sugared breakfast cereal and US corporations’ complicity in the obesity epidemic plaguing American children.

Ron English is known the world over for consistently creating art with a message and has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images. He has coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie Supersize Me, and Abraham Obama, the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents, an image widely discussed in the media as directly impacting the 2008 election. Recently, Ron English has created art in partnership with South Park, pop star Chris Brown, and has even been featured on an episode of The Simpsons.

“We’re honored to be working with such an amazingly talented artist like Ron English,” says Miranda O’Brien, Founder of Clutter. “Working on Popaganda.com is a key part of our mission: providing artists with direct access to their public on a whole new level.” As the creators of the Designer Toy Awards, Clutter is a power influencer, a conduit to one of the key trendsetting subcultures in contemporary pop culture. Designer vinyl toys are quickly becoming a trending international art form, attracting a fan base that spans a convergence of demographics – from sneaker pimps to high art collectors to music fans and fringe enthusiasts.
