Mr. Brainwash in NY- 05.14.10

brainwash0.jpg It’s 3am. I’m tired, but i felt like i needed to share before the backlog built up and my excitement wandered off… what a day its been, so much #OBJECTHUNT fun ~ so many supportive folks having fun at design week this year between workaholicking. And between it all i stumbled upon Mr. Brainwash’s takeover of the boarded up construction ~ mixed with scrawls about what a hack he is ~ only to turn across the street to see all his art also inside at a huge gallery show… and it was filled with classic designer chairs… so, i couldn’t help myself, the mix of spray paint art, pithy statements and quotes, elephants-kangaroos-snoopy made of tires, a life size NY taxi packaged in matchbox packaging with a toys r us price tag… so say what you will about his work ~ i just had to take and share some pics! See it all on the next page…






















This one’s not him… i don’t think… but it was so adorable… brainwash23.jpg

Is this exhibit still showing? For how long? What is the address of the gallery?

Seriously? MBW is a total biter and should not be given any coverage on this site!

The bear is actually by artist Philip Lumbang.

Doesn’t anyone realize ‘Mr. Brainwash’ is the statement? This seems to be working like a charm.

This is pretty interesting to see after watching “Exit Through the Gift Shop” - I think the larger than life sculptures are great. I’d love to see this stuff in person.
