Head to 1xRUN.com to see detail shots and sign up for alerts on our upcoming Ron English editions including Grin and the re-release of Ron’s 1999 album Revelations Book II. See more after the jump.
This print was released at Ron’s solo exhibition at Opera Gallery in New York City in 2009. This version of “Grin” was an edition of 200 released exclusively at the opening and has never been made available online. 1xRUN is proud to offer this extremely limited edition run of 5 artist’s proofs numbered 1/5, 2/5….
After having a conversation with Ron about his upcoming re-release of Revelations Book II (which you can see below) Ron mentioned having a few AP’s of Grin available and asked if we wanted to release them to our collectors. To say that we are excited to make these prints available to 1xRUN collectors would be an understatement. Read on for a short video and flicks of Ron’s recent visit to Detroit below.
Over the past year we have had the pleasure of seeing Ron’s work up close and personal. When Ron visited Detroit earlier this year, he took some time to see a few Detroit street art mainstays as he stopped at the Packard Plant and the Heidelberg Project before coming by 323East Gallery aka the 1xRUN offices to apply his signature brand bending ironic posters with wheat paste. Check out the short video and flicks below.
In addition to this very limited run of 5 artist proofs, we are proud to offer two releases of Ron’s Revelations Book II to kick off 2012 . In early January we will be offering a hand painted limited edition of 13 as well as a larger edition that will be hand stenciled. Check out the limited run of 13 at 1xRUN.com or click the image below.
This photos represent one unique version of the album. Each individual copy will be sublimely unique and hand embellished by Ron English. This double LP version of Revelations Book II is an extremely limited run of 13 with hand embellished album covers. This re-release of the 1999 album features a lyrical storyline written by Ron English and was musically constructed by a varied group of musicians including Daniel Johnston, Patti Rothberg, Railrod Jerk, Wammo, and Emilio China. This marks the first re-release of Revelations II on vinyl and has been limited to 900 records to be mixed randomly on colored vinyl with 200 orange, 200 green and 500 black.
