October 19, 2012
Mr Brainwash collaborated with another Guetta (David Guetta, that is) and directed the music video for “Metropolis”, a song David Guetta made with fellow producer Nicky Romero which currently boasts over 14 million views on You Tube.
In addition to the art and film communities, Mr Brainwash is also an in-demand name in the music industry.
He has designed art for the album campaigns of some of the world’s most influential artists, such as The Black Keys, who asked Mr Brainwash to create a poster for their concert in Los Angeles at the Staples Center
Rock The Vote, the nation’s largets non-partisan voter registration organization, invited Mr Brainwash to decorate the bus they would be taking across the country to encourage young Americans to register and take part in their civic duty.
When the Summer Olympics arrived and the whole world had its eyes on London, Mr Brainwash made his UK debut, where he was already a well-known name, because of his collaborations with Banksy, by invading The Old Sorting Office, a colossal space, steps from the British Museum.
His love of British pop culture icons rang out through the streets, as Mr Brainwash adorned the side of the Sorting Office with a 6 story tall Queen Elizabeth II, in her coronation attire, holding a Union Jack spray can.
The show saw large crowds each day and became Mr Brainwash’s most attended show to date.
The pre-opening of the show was a party in collaboration with Coca Cola, featuring world-famous DJ David Guetta. The party, titled “Guetta Vs. Guetta,” had over 1,000 people in attendance.
Mr Brainwash returned to the home of his first solo show, Los Angeles, with “Life is Beautiful: Art Show 2011″.
This show was his biggest yet, taking over an 80,000 square foot building in the center of the city. Each day, thousands of people gathered to see this thrilling monster of a show, which embraced Los Angeles, the epicenter of pop culture.
Mr Brainwash also gave artists the opportunity to be a part of the show. For the exhibition, he donated over 20,000 square feet of space to showcase donated works from around the globe. Artists were invited to mail in their art or install the artworks themselves.
Most art shows and exhibitions are reserved for a specific segment of society, however, Mr Brainwash art shows are for everyone. His shows became an art access point for art lovers of all ages, and socio-economic backgrounds.
The first 300 people to arrive and step into the building on the 22nd received a special edition print that was numbered, hand-finished, thumbprinted and signed by Mr. Brainwash himself.
Mr Brainwash continued to bring his art all over the world, making his Canadian debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011.
Mr Brainwash’s installations were placed all over the city. They included his signature eight-foot tall spray can sculptures, each one a different film genre, and life-size Canadian Mounties cutouts, armed with boom mics and cameras.
Everywhere Mr Brainwash went, he was able to create a pop art conversation with the city for which he created.
Mr Brainwash also contributed a print of Grace Kelly for the film festival’s exhibition “Movie Star to Princess” in honor of the late film actress.
