Ron English is widely considered a seminal figure in the advancement of street art away from traditional wild-style lettering into clever statement and masterful trompe l’oeil based art. He has created illegal murals and billboards that blend stunning visuals with biting political, consumerist and surrealist statements, hijacking public space worldwide for the sake of art since the 1980s.

Every character, trait, and Idea in the Light Cult metaverse was conceived, hand-drawn, and digitized solely by Ron English. Most Bulb NFTs are Uncommons; 1 in 10 are Rares.

Uncommons are 100% unique with randomly generated assets. No two are alike, but some traits are rarer than others. There are 2.7 million possible combinations of traits but only 9,000 Uncommons exist.

Rares are handmade masterpieces born from the brain of Ron English. Every Rare is a one-of-a-kind NFT with absurd qualities reflecting those of the Inner Circle.

“My best attribute is that I'm an endless source of ideas. What’s the biggest problem with being me, psychologically? I wake up with 10,000 new ideas every morning, and there’s absolutely no way the world can absorb 10,000 ideas by Ron English. Until now.”

-Ron English



Ron English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie "Supersize Me," and Abraham Obama, the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents, an image widely discussed in the media as directly impacting the 2008 election.
