April 2019 – The Deodato Arte gallery in Milan is hosting the first official exhibition in Italy of works by Mr Brainwash. Entitled “Mr Brainwash-Milan is beautiful”, the exhibition is open until 4 June 2019.
More than 100 pieces are on display, two of which are dedicated to the Vespa: two signed and numbered screen prints on paper (in two formats, small and big), forming an exclusive limited edition created by the artist specifically for the exhibition in Milan.
VESPA BY MR BRAINWASH, LIMITED EDITION SCREEN PRINT.
The exhibition is an opportunity to admire the original works of the famous Los Angeles street artist, who, for the Milan event, also transformed the white livery of a 1959 vintage Vespa scooter into a riot of colour (the two-wheeler is portrayed in the two limited edition screen prints): the scooter cum work of art has been displayed in the window of the gallery.
An artist highly sought after by the media and a frequent guest on TV programs, Mr Brainwash is the subject of dozens of photo reports, where he also appears on the saddle of his Vespa artwork. Mr Brainwash is the pseudonym of international artist and writer Thierry Guetta, French by birth and American by adoption (also a partner of RED in the fight against AIDS; website: www.mrbrainwash.com).
