I Love You! (neon)

I Love You! (neon), 2017, by Mr. Brainwash, is a neon lightbulb artwork mounted on plywood with stickers and framed in a plexiglas box. It is from an edition of 8. I Love You! (2017) is signed on the front and back, dated, and thumbprinted. It has Mr. Brainwash’s special signature on verso with a dollar bill serial number, and comes with official Mr. Brainwash certificate of authenticity.

Mr. Brainwash’s uniformly subversive style fuses historic pop imagery and contemporary cultural iconography to create his own pop art – graffiti hybrid. The development of this style has catapulted Brainwash to international stardom. Mr. Brainwash’s first solo show Life is Beautiful was held in Los Angeles in June 2008, showing over 100 artworks. In addition to Mr. Brainwash’s widely recognized iconic art images, Life is Beautiful featured larger than life art installations which included a 20-foot robot made of old televisions, and a life-size recreation of Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks and a pyramid made from 20,000 books. Originally scheduled to open for only two weeks, the art exhibit was extended for three months, attracting more than 30,000 visitors.

I Love You! (neon), 2017, by Mr. Brainwash, is a neon lightbulb artwork mounted on plywood with stickers and framed in a plexiglas box. It is from an edition of 8. I Love You! (2017) is signed on the front and back, dated, and thumbprinted. It has Mr. Brainwash’s special signature on verso with a dollar bill serial number, and comes with official Mr. Brainwash certificate of authenticity.

Mr. Brainwash’s uniformly subversive style fuses historic pop imagery and contemporary cultural iconography to create his own pop art – graffiti hybrid. The development of this style has catapulted Brainwash to international stardom. Mr. Brainwash’s first solo show Life is Beautiful was held in Los Angeles in June 2008, showing over 100 artworks.

Originally scheduled to open for only two weeks, the art exhibit was extended for three months, attracting more than 30,000 visitors.

Shortly after his initial introduction to Banksy, Mr. Brainwash made the decision to transition from art lover to artist as depicted in the film “Exit Through the Gift Shop”. Mr. Brainwash soon graduated from a few hand drawn stickers to making giant sized paste-ups, and his iconic pop graffiti art is now seen on the streets and art galleries of New York and Los Angeles.

The film “Exit Through the Gift Shop” as well as Mr. Brainwash and his relationship with the street artist Banksy is shroud in great controversy and mystery. There has been debate over whether the documentary is genuine or a mockumentary, although Banksy answers “Yes” when asked if the film is real.
