Wildness descended upon Opera Gallery New York last Thursday evening for the special preview of Ron English‘s Immortal Underground Exhibition. Over 200 fellow artists, friends and well-wishers worked around the SoHo space to see some 20+ new installations, including several large sculptures of the deathly smile of “Grin”, English’s reinterpretation of Charlie Brown, and “MC Supersized”, a satirical take on fast food giant McDonald’s and its official mascot, Ronald McDonald. The event became a carnival-esque atmosphere when at 7:15 pm sharp, a stretched limousine ushered in some of English’s caricatures – Cowgirls and MC Supersized, in real-life forms with full on body paint and costume.

The Ron English “Immortal Underground” Exhibition will be on display at the Opera Gallery New York till December 2nd. Meanwhile, interested collectors could contact Opera Gallery at info@operagallery.com or drop by the space itself for more information.
