We’re really excited this week to show you some special footage from the breakout Art Exhibition of the year in Los Angeles:
Mr. Brainwash, or MBW, is the moniker of an eccentric French filmmaker. MBW has spent the last nine years attempting to make the ultimate documentary about graffiti art. But whilst filming many of the worlds most renowned street artists at work, MBW began putting his camera aside and making art of his own.
MBW does not fit the stereotype of your average street vandal. His artistic process chiefly consists of throwing random modern cultural icons into a blender and turning it up to eleven. The results are by turns profound, provocative and inspirational.
Life is beautiful is the first exhibition ever mounted by Mr. Brainwash. It took place in a former Hollywood studio complex and featured over 200 paintings, sculptures and prints alongside an installation made from 25,000 books and a life-size re-creation of Edward Hoppers Nighthawks.
