Mr. Brainwash Madonna

Mr. Brainwash Madonna is a unique Silkscreen and Spray Paint on Paper.  Mr. Brainwash combines Jean-Baptiste Mondino’s 1990 photograph with an earlier portrait by Alberto Tolot to create this beautiful silkscreen. Finishing the work with a flourish of hand painting, the artist presents a visual amalgamation that negotiates representation and abstraction.  This silkscreen is signed on the front, and has Mr. Brainwash special signature on the back with thumbprint and serial number.  Comes with the official Mr. Brainwash certificate.

In 2009, when Madonna was set to release her greatest hits compilation, “Celebration”, she asked Mr. Brainwash to design the cover. He designed 15 different covers for the wide release, singles, DVDs and special edition vinyl. Mr. Brainwash also collaborated with Madonna for her Hard Candy Fitness in Toronto. The Hard Candy Fitness opening featured the live onsite creation of an 11 by 30 foot Madonna mural, designed by Mr. Brainwash.

Mr. Brainwash was born in France in 1966, and has become one of American’s most popular ‘street art’ artists. Originally a videographer, Mr. Brainwash began his career in 1999 documenting the lives and artwork of various graffiti street artists such as Banksy and Shepard Fairey. Mr. Brainwash has collected hours of footage often risking his own neck following graffiti artists creating their street art.

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.
