Description

Mr. Brainwash, Mickey (48 x 48) is an Original Mixed Media on Paper with Stenciling, Acrylic Painting, Collage and Spray Painting. A large square size, one-of-a-kind original artwork featuring Mickey Mouse, with Mr. Brainwash’s special signature on the back with thumbprint and dollar bill sequence.  This piece comes  with the official Mr. Brainwash certificate of authenticity.

Mickey Mouse was the first ever cartoon character to talk. In the 1929 episode, Disney’s The Karnival Kid, Mickey Mouse’s first words were “Hot dogs!”

To mark Disneyland’s 50th anniversary, 50 versions of Mickey Mouse’s ears were hidden throughout the park. Hidden Mickeys are elsewhere too, such as within feature films like Disney’s Dumbo and within the other Disney Parks.

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.

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.”
