Whether putting up his own US/Mexican border-crossing signs or appearing on the Simpsons, street artist Ron English is a versatile, trenchant, eyeball-kicking master of the form.

Previous Ron English books like Stickable Art Offenses have hinted at his body of work, but with Last Gasp's massive Status Factory retrospective, we get a much rounder picture of English's sensibility, through ingenious reworkings of his themes through many variations, through which they acquire depth, polish and shine.

Thanks to Last Gasp for providing a generous gallery of high-rez excerpts from Status Factory.
