Lot Details

Mr. Brainwash (MBW), otherwise known as Thierry Guetta is one of California’s most successful and popular street artists. Originally an eccentric French videographer, MBW famously 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 working artist. MBW’s 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 once rising street artist to international superstardom. MBW’s first solo show “Life is Beautiful” was held in LA in June 2008, the exhibition featured over 100 works in a 15,000ft sq TV studio. Since then MBW has collaborated with Madonna on her greatest hits album cover as well as numerous other street artists on the development of the street art film, “Exit through the Gift Shop”. Mr. Brainwash currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

This work is Mr. Brainwash's homage to John Lennon. It features desirable deckled edges, so it can be beautifully floated and framed. It is hand signed on the recto (front) and also bears the artist's unique thumbprint on the verso (back).

Mint condition; never framed.
