The Hundreds points out a massive exhibit of artist Ron English’s work going on right now at the Opera Gallery in New York City. The show is called Status Factory, and features three floors of tightly executed psychedelic pop culture influenced work.

From the show’s description:

Ron English and Opera Gallery present “Status Factory,” a surreal assemblage of the artist’s most well-known character motifs alive in their natural habitat, a camo-arcadian warholian times square circus sideshow mash-up barely contained by the silver walls of 382 West Broadway. English draws the curtain back to reveal the process and inspiration behind his most outrageous work, with sculpture, installation and street art shown for the first time in context beside a new body of monumental masterworks. This highly interactive exhibition traces the arc of English’s most ambitious themes across mediums like a cartoon colored tightrope: dangerous and fun.

(Be sure to check out The Hundreds‘ new Soho outpost as well, which has been described as “a modern boutique imagined 70 years in the future.” )
