Lot description
This is a collaborative piece by Mr. Brainwash and Monsieur Andre, executed in homage to Andy Warhol's "Campbell's Tomato Soup" silkscreen. Monsieur André's spray paint scrawl is juxtaposed against Mr. Brainwash's screenprint, making it a unique work from two acclaimed contemporary street artists.

Thierry Guetta a.k.a Mr. Brainwash (b. 1966) is one of California’s most prolific street artists. Originally an eccentric French videographer, Mr. Brainwash began his career in 1999 documenting the lives and work of various street artists such as Banksy and Shepard Fairey. Shortly after his initial introduction to Banksy, Mr. Brainwash made the decision to transition between voyeur of the arts to practical artist. The development of his style has catapulted the street artist to international stardom. Mr. Brainwash’s first solo show, “Life is Beautiful,” was held in Los Angeles in June 2008; the exhibition featured over 100 works in a 15,000 square-foot studio. Since then, Mr. Brainwash has collaborated with Madonna on her greatest hits album cover as well as with a number of street artists on the development of the film “Exit through the Gift Shop." Mr. Brainwash currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

Monsieur André a.k.a Andre is best known for his distinctive stick character "Mr. A," which he drew throughout the streets of Paris during the late 1990s. He is also recognized as a night-life entrepreneur, acting as the face of a number of nightclubs in Paris, Tokyo and New York. He is also the editor of the Paris issue of French fashion magazine Purple. Monsieur André also starred alongside Mr. Brainwash in the 2010 street art film "Exit Through the Gift Shop."
