Mr. Brainwash and G... remixed!

At the opening for Mr. Brainwash’s Icons Remixed art show in New York, I met the artist sometimes known as Thierry Guetta again.  I professed my love for his work and the proof was in the pudding when I asked MBW to autograph several pictures I took of him at the original opening for his hugely successful art show in February 2010.  He was very impressed that I had gone through the trouble to make the digital images into prints and he happily obliged to sign them for me.  Since the exhibit was remixed, I thought it was appropriate to have a remixed encounter with G photo.  Again, the super cool artist posed with me.  Thanks again MBW!  Life is truly beautiful.

If you missed the first 3 installments of the Icons series, click here and catch up.  We’ll wait.

As a final reminder, all of the art you are about to see was made with pieces of broken vinyl records.

Pix from Part 3 can be seen if you keep on reading.  Though I’ve said it before, it’s worth repeating:  All of these pieces of art were created by using bits of broken vinyl records to produce the iconic images you are about to see.

Mr. Brainwash and G!

Wow!  What a weekend I’ve had.  Yesterday I saw a lot of amazing art and met Patti Smith, and today on Valentine’s Day, I celebrated by attending the opening of Mr. Brainwash’s new exhibit, Icons.  There’ll be lots of pictures to come as well as a review of the exhibit, but for now, here’s the story of my encounter with the elusive artist who is also known as Thierry Guetta.

Picture it, a freezing cold New York City day.  I found out the secret location of Mr. Brainwash’s new exhibit Icons (which is located at 415 West 13th Street, by the way).  The rumour on the streets was that the first 300 attendees would receive a limited edition lithograph signed by the evasive artist.  The exhibit opened at 3 pm, so naturally I was in line at noon.  I was literally the hundredth person to show up, so I was guaranteed my free print (which retails for anywhere between $500-$1000).  I braved the freezing cold for three VERY long hours, but finally, around 3 pm, Mr. Brainwash came out and met every single person that waited out in the cold to see the show.  He was super nice and very friendly.  After hearing him speak, I discovered that he is French.  Who knew?  The exhibit was amazing (though slightly disorganized).  Again, a review and pictures will be coming up in the next day or so.  By the time I left the show, I walked away with a signed print, 1 unsigned print, a poster and a stack of about 30 postcards featuring his art -all for FREE.  It was well worth the wait as he is one of my favorite artists.  If you are in the NY area between now and the end of March, you’d be a fool to miss Icons.
