Salvador Dali Drinking A Coke by Mr. Brainwash

Artist Mr. Brainwash’s recently closed Icons exhibit in New York was definitely one of my favorite art shows of the year as it included hundreds of works by the world’s newest art star.  The above image is an improvement on a Salvador Dali painting with a twist:  the face on crutches is drinking a soda!  It was one of my favorite works in the exhibit and I thought it was damn near perfect.

That is, until I saw this image which landed in my inbox.

Artist Beau has struck again and according2g, this is friggin’ brilliant!  For those that never had the chance to see the Icons exhibit, you should know the following – This piece is displayed out in the open and it’s housed right next to several gallery people that patrol the grounds.  How on earth did Beau pull this one off?!  I am really looking forward to seeing what Beau comes up with next because once you swindle a swindler, anything is possible!

Beau knows brilliance!

Live To The Fullest by Mr. Brainwash

If you have thoughts that Mr. Brainwash is just the face of artist Banksy, this new work is not going to help you wash away your doubts.  Regardless, I am really into it.  When you look a little closer at this society party, you’ll see a style that is very Banksy-ish.

Mr. Brainwash’s Icons Exhibit – Remixed

The Doors - Remixed by Mr. Brainwash

Mr. Brainwash has done it again.  On the heels of his extremely successful Icons art show in New York, he’s remixed the exhibit.  For those who have already seen this exhibit, you are going to have to go back and see all the changes.  The top floor is completely different.  The pieces have been traded out for newer models.  The Madonna wall, the Matchbox taxi  and the extremely large paint can are still in tact, but the images above and below (and many more) have been added to the exhibit.  Gone from the bottom floor are the Iconic rock stars made out of broken vinyl record pieces and instead the exhibit has become interactive where cans of spray paint are left out for visitors to make their own art on the walls of the gallery!  I attended the exhibit on opening day as I did for the initial “Icons” exhibit and like the first time, it was quite a scene.  The first 300 people received a free “Charlie Chaplin Love” print, hand signed by Mr. Brainwash and people lined up as early as 6 o’clock in the morning to get their hands on MBW’s latest work.  The print distribution system was slightly better organized than the February opening, but it was still mayhem as New Yorkers stood outside on an extremely windy and cold day.  Mr. Brainwash got a chance to mingle during the opening and he was gracious enough to autograph a few pictures that I took of him during the February opening.  Once again, he was super nice and he was pretty impressed by my photography skills as he made the comment to me during our encounter.  There’s been quite a bit of controversy about MBW in the art world as the movie Exit Through The Gift Shopis being regarded as “Banksy’s biggest prank,” but the great thing about the film is that you can judge for yourself after you see it.  Either way, I am one of the many that’s been Brainwashed.

The Beatles by Mr. Brainwash

To celebrate the relaunch of Mr. Brainwash‘s hugely successful Icons art show in New York, he has added new pieces to the exhibit. The above photo is his vision of a Beatles and Kiss mash-up. I love it! Does this make you want to rock and roll all night or cry baby cry?
