Mr. Brainwash mosaic
On a beautiful sultry Sunday, while on a visit to my art college son in Chelsea, we happened upon a loft exhibit of the Manhattan artist Mr. Brainwash. Mr Brainwash ("MBW") is a pseudonym for Thierry Guetta, a French street and pop artist who takes famously historic icons and amends the originals in slight or significant ways to achieve an ironic and often politically or socially biting effect.
We were very taken by his messages held here by a “pop” Alfred Hitchcock. What a unique perspective to share on Mary's Monday! 4 very different messages, each so very true, don’t you think?
