So my best friend, Erica, is in town this week. She came up from Philly to visit and I havn’t seen her since my graduation in May so we had our usual BFF (with her younger siblings outing). I found out about the Mr. Brainwash “ICONS” Remix exhibit via twitter and it is amazing. What you are about to see is only a small snap shot of what the exhibit entails.

Erica, Julianne, Samuel, and Me…I remember when I was taller than him…that was a long time ago lol.

These portraits are amazing!

Images made out of vinyl

This is so powerful!

The horse is actually made out of tires and Martin Luther King Jr. with the coolest hat and shades.

Mr. Brainwash also paid tribute to some of the greats in the world of art: Keith Herring, Picasso, Banksy, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, and others. He also paid tribute to the greats in music, politics, civil rights, science, and sports: Martin Luther King Jr., Michale Jackson, Muhammad Ali, ¬†Albert Einstein, The Beatles, Kiss, Ray Charles…and more.

The color motif was pink and here is the story behind it:

Mr. Brainwash had a can of pink paint in his trunk. It spilled out in his trunk and was dripping everywhere. He was inspired then to create the remix to his “ICONS” exhibit

If you are in the NYC area, check out the exhibit in the Meat Packing District.

IT IS FREE!
