Lot description
Mr Brainwash's "The Champ" is a twelve-color screenprint on hand-torn archival art paper.

Mr. Brainwash, sometimes known as MBW and otherwise known as Thierry Guetta, is one of California’s most prolific street artists. Originally an eccentric videographer, he began his career in 1999 documenting the lives and works of various street artists, such as Banksy and Shepard Fairey. Shortly after his initial introduction to Banksy, Mr. Brainwash made the decision to transition from voyeur of the arts to artist.

His uniformly subversive style fuses historic pop imagery and contemporary cultural iconography to create his own pop art graffiti hybrid. The development of this style has catapulted the artist to international stardom. Mr. Brainwash’s first solo show, “Life is Beautiful,” was held in LA in June 2008, the exhibition featured over 100 works in a 15,000 sq ft TV studio. Since then, the artist has collaborated with Madonna, designing the cover for her greatest hits album, and worked with numerous other street artists on the development of the film “Exit through the Gift Shop.” Mr. Brainwash currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
