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
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.
Red Hot Chili Peppers collaborated with Mr Brainwash, recruiting him to promote the release of their album, “I’m With You.”
Mr Brainwah was seen wheat-pasting the promotional posters he designed for the band all along the streets of Los Angeles in the Hollywood and Melrose area.
To commemorate the Oscars and Exit Through The Gift Shop’s nomination into its Best Documentary category by the Academy, Mr Brainwash painted a mural on La Brea Ave. of the Oscar statuette wearing a hoodie guarded, and filmed, by Storm Troopers.
Carson Daly paid Mr Brainwash a studio visit to conduct a two-part interview about street art, his beginnings and his (almost impossible to access) solo show in Los Angeles. In the interview, Mr Brainwash playfully explained his process and his views on how the streets have been turned into a public art gallery that anyone can enjoy.
