Mr. Brainwash – Einstein – Love is the Answer (30 x 22)

Mr. Brainwash, Einstein – Love is the Answer (30 x 22) is a unique Mixed Media on Paper with Stenciling, Acrylic Painting, Collage and Spray Painting. An original artwork featuring Albert Einstein protesting that “Love Is The Answer”.  Signed, dated, and thumbprinted by Mr. Brainwash with his special signature on the back with dollar bill sequence. Einstein – Love is the Answer (30 x 22) comes with the official Mr. Brainwash certificate of authenticity with half dollar bill.

The German-born physicist Albert Einstein developed the first of his groundbreaking theories while working as a clerk in the Swiss patent office in Bern. After making his name with four scientific articles published in 1905, he went on to win worldwide fame for his general theory of relativity and a Nobel Prize in 1921 for his explanation of the phenomenon known as the photoelectric effect.

Mr. Brainwash practices an irreverent brand of appropriation characterized by the use of images from history, popular culture, and art history. The artist subtly alters the picture or its context, mischievously undermining the tone of the source material. Brainwash, a pseudonym for Thierry Guetta, is known for producing massive spectacles to display his art. He came to prominence through mounting large-scale public projects in his current home of Los Angeles and as the main figure in the Banksy-directed film Exit Through the Gift Shop. His work hinges on the idea that anything is possible in his practice. “Art has no walls. Anybody can be an artist,” he says. “Art has no rules. There’s no manual.”

Description

Mr. Brainwash, Einstein – Love is the Answer (30 x 22) is a unique Mixed Media on Paper with Stenciling, Acrylic Painting, Collage and Spray Painting. An original artwork featuring Albert Einstein protesting that “Love Is The Answer”.  Signed, dated, and thumbprinted by Mr. Brainwash with his special signature on the back with dollar bill sequence. Einstein – Love is the Answer (30 x 22) comes with the official Mr. Brainwash certificate of authenticity with half dollar bill.

The German-born physicist Albert Einstein developed the first of his groundbreaking theories while working as a clerk in the Swiss patent office in Bern. After making his name with four scientific articles published in 1905, he went on to win worldwide fame for his general theory of relativity and a Nobel Prize in 1921 for his explanation of the phenomenon known as the photoelectric effect. An outspoken pacifist who was publicly identified with the Zionist movement, Einstein emigrated from Germany to the United States when the Nazis took power before World War II. He lived and worked in Princeton, New Jersey, for the remainder of his life.

In the late 1930s, Einstein’s theories, including his equation E=mc2, helped form the basis of the development of the atomic bomb. In 1939, at the urging of the Hungarian physicist Leo Szilard, Einstein wrote to President Franklin D. Roosevelt advising him to approve funding for the development of uranium before Germany could gain the upper hand. Einstein, who became a U.S. citizen in 1940 but retained his Swiss citizenship, was never asked to participate in the resulting Manhattan Project, as the U.S. government suspected his socialist and pacifist views. In 1952, Einstein declined an offer extended by David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s premier, to become president of Israel.
