This piece was released in the wake of Mr Brainwash's first exhibition in New York "ICONS". It served as a conclusion to the show featuring the Statue of Liberty, perhaps one of the city's most iconic images. The work suggests a sense of gratitude to the city of New York for opening its door (and streets) to Mr. Brainwash.

Thierry Guetta a.k.a Mr. Brainwash (b. 1966) is one of California’s most prolific street artists. Originally a videographer, Mr. Brainwash began his career in 1999 documenting the lives and work of street artists such as Banksy and Shepard Fairey. Shortly after his initial introduction to Banksy, Mr. Brainwash made the decision to transition from being a voyeur of the arts to a practicing artist. 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 for the cover of her greatest hits album as well as with a number of street artists on the development of the film “Exit through the Gift Shop." Mr. Brainwash lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
