(ENG) Mr Brainwash: an artist or an idiot?

22 Sep 2012

Thierry Guetta (aka Mr Brainwash) is a street artist  launched by Bansky's documentary. Like Banksy, Guetta employs famous artistic and historic images and amends the originals in various ways. Guetta does not have physical involvement in the construction of the artwork. He passes ideas to his creative team of  graphic designers and photoshoppers, who realise the finished pieces. Art in outsourcing.

 

Critics observed that his works strongly emulate the styles and concepts of Banksy or Andy Warhol. Street artists also hate Mr Brainwash because he's reworks the clichés of street or pop art. As it comes to us, we really liked the exhibition Guetta, like his art, is colourful, enjoyable and irreverent. Our critique though, is about the lack of message in Mr Brainwash's art.

 

"Life is beautiful" ... 

"May the art be with you" ... 

"Where there is love there is life" ... 

 

... where are the satirical epigrams and dark humour on today society of the street art?
