The biggest Icon of them all - Mr. Brainwash

In a previous post, I told you about my encounter with the coolest artist of our time, Mr. Brainwash.  I urge you to go see his exhibit Icons, which is located at 415 West 13th Street in New York.  The exhibit runs from now until the end of March.

After the jump, you will see the first installment of Icons (according to Mr. Brainwash).  If you like any of the following artists, you’ll really get a kick out of these pictures: Barry White, Billie Holliday, Blondie, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Carlos Santana, Diana Ross, David Bowie or Dr. Dre.  Prince and Jim Morrison can be seen herePlease note that all of these images were made by piecing together bits of broken vinyl records. How in the hell he pulled this off is anybody’s guess, but the results are stunning.  Enjoy.

    oooooooo. vinyl, how fucking retro. Mr. brainwash is NOT the “coolest” artist of our time. the only thing he has going for him is that he’s controversial in a way that he does NOTHING himself and only recreates everyone elses hard work. MBW does not create art, MBW creates mass production of something that was at some point art, and is now so processed that it just becomes complete and utter fucking trash.

    for mbw to be “the coolest artist of our time” it might help if he was indeed an actual artist. mr brainwash is the perfect name for him… because hes brainwashed people like you into thinking hes an artist. its amazing what money and hype can do…
