Ron English

One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, New York-based painter, street artist and designer Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images across all categories of culture, history and art.

As a fine art painter enjoying gallery and museum representation worldwide, Mr. English is well-known for his stunning technique and inventive use of color. Widely considered the Godfather of Street Art, he has created murals and billboards across the globe that blend dazzling visuals with provocative statements. Mr. English has also been on the vanguard of the booming collectible figure movement, releasing hundreds of unique and highly coveted collectibles which continue to fetch healthy aftermarket prices.

Publications featuring Mr. English include The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Miami Herald, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Art News, Time Magazine, Rolling Stone, Creem, Juxtapoz, Hi Fructose, Mad Magazine and many others. Motion picture/television appearances include Exit through the Gift Shop, Supersize Me, the Simpsons, Work of Art, Street Art Throwdown, CNN, BBC, Sky TV, and many others.


Superchief Gallery was born out of the underground art scene of New York and is now as an independent artist-run gallery with permanent large scale warehouse locations in New York City, Downtown LA and Wynwood, Miami, founded in 2012 by Edward Zipco & Bill Dunleavy.  As a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary platform, Superchief Gallery has a near 10 year history of supporting artists from disparate scenes & collectives, enabling them to participate in the larger cultural movement and we are proud to act as an extension of the art landscape in its most raw and honest form.

Superchief Gallery has been working with digital artists since 2015 and when we saw that NFTs were enabling the artform of our generation to finally be accepted by the art world at large- as well as and more importantly, enabling Artist Royalties – we committed fully to this essential future by opening the world’s first physical NFT gallery in NYC. Our goal is to show a new generation of art collectors how to properly evaluate and collect NFTs from both Digital Native & Traditional Artists as well as visually presenting how to live with NFTs as the newest part of their collection at home. 

Superchief Gallery NFT is working alongside the hardware community at large to create the industry standard for the contemporary art world — presenting NFT artwork IRL as the artists intended it to be experienced.

Jeremiah Grin

Superchief Gallery NFT and MakersPlace continue their monthly event series on Friday, August 20th with “Ron English x Daniel Johnston’s Jeremiah Grin”.
Meant to encapsulate decades of friendship and artistic collaboration between two iconic talents, Ron English & the Estate of Daniel Johnston have created a limited edition line of NFTs featuring Jeremiah the Frog, the character most immediately associated with the late singer-songwriter.

Using a 3d model of Jeremiah, the prolific pop surrealist worked with Clutter Studios to retro-fit his signature treatment of “the Grin” onto the piece, superimposed into English’s iconic Delusionville environment and inscribed with Johnston’s trademark phrase, “Hi How Are You?” The release will feature a special musical component as well, a previously unreleased, long-lost track entitled “Big Empty Ego” written and recorded by English and Johnston.
This second “In Person NFT Drop” in a series of ongoing, monthly events curated by Superchief Gallery NFT exclusively for MakersPlace.

All works will be presented to the public and prepared for a live auction that same evening on MakersPlace. The event will be free. RSVP is required for entry.
