Mr. Brainwash – Kate Moss (42 x 42)

Mr. Brainwash, Kate Moss (42 x 42) is an Original Mixed Media on Paper with Silkscreen, Collage, Acrylic Paint and Spraypaint. This is an original artwork featuring the iconic British Model.  It is signed on the front, and has Mr. Brainwash’s special signature on the back with date and serial number.  Original Mr. Brainwash certificate of authenticity included.

Arriving at the end of the “supermodel era”, Moss rose to fame in the mid 1990s as part of the heroin chic fashion trend. Her collaborations with Calvin Klein brought her to fashion icon status. She is known for her waifish figure, and role in size zero fashion. She received an award at the 2013 British Fashion Awards to acknowledge her contribution to fashion over 25 years. Moss is also a contributing fashion editor for British Vogue.

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.”
