‘Two Ton Sam’ is a boxed vinyl sculpture by acclaimed American artist Ron English.
Ron English is known for combining expert craftsmanship with a cynical, humorous critique of American culture. English coined the term ‘POPaganda’ to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superheroes and comic strips, to art-historical iconography. His work includes art prints, billboards, and sculptures.
‘Two Ton Sam’ is a searing comment on American consumerist culture, fattening up its children on sugary cereal with the promise of a free plastic toy at the bottom of every box.
In English’s twisted reality, the toy itself has gobbled up the saccharine cereal, resulting in Two Ton Sam, an overweight version of Kellogg’s Toucan Sam. This 9” collectable figure, complete with articulated arms, proves that toys don’t just have to be for kids.
