During a London visit in 2012, an exhibition was held displaying the works of Mr. Brainwash. His work is greatly inspired by Banksy. The exhibition ‘exit through the gift shop’ displayed wonderful, imaginative creations with the words from Mr. Brianwash, admitting he is “Banksy’s biggest work of art”.
I loved the look of these pieces and as they seemed free-spirited and so fun to look at. There was everything from portraits created from broken records to paint splattered to all corners of the room. I found the exhibition very different to anything I’d seen before as nothing was in frames and if they were, they were graffitied or broken; I enjoyed myself and the whole atmosphere of the warehouse-looking space became exciting as soon as you went inside.
These pieces are sold for £26k for an original piece, or more but if you can’t spare that type of money, you can pick up a free souvenir poster on the way out. Just as I did!
