In Preparation for his upcoming POPaganda on Paper show with Pop International Galleries, Ron talked to Street Art News about the show, Banksy, and Covid-19.
“Well I’m sure I would find it funny if that helps? But getting back to your new show featuring all works on paper. Is this is the first time you’ve had a fully online art exhibition?
Yes. It kind of started organically because I just thought, OK, I’m in a weird position. I can hang out for a year and a half and just work on the Delusionville, and I can make every plant, every animal, every house, every river I can. Everything completely unique and cool, and I can just work on this project for a year. At the end of the year, I’m going to release a book called The Grand Delusion about this new world. Then I can go to Hollywood to do a cartoon show or maybe do a VR version. It would be like the Bible of Delusionville. This is all the animals, this is what their belief system is, this is what their political system is…etc. I figured I would just work on it for a year and pull the whole thing together and have this grand, magnificent thing. I thought nobody’s selling anything. The galleries can’t get open. And then I started checking on some artist friends, and they are telling me “Oh, yeah. I’ve never done better.” And then Pop International Galleries contacted me and said “Give us a work on paper because we’ve been selling a lot of works online since we can’t open up yet.” So I gave them some and they sold really quickly, so I gave them more and those sold like crazy, so at that point we said “Let’s just have a show!””
