You may recall the work of "street artist" Mr. Brainwash a/k/a Thierry Guetta from CMJ 2008: his Kanye and Jim Morrison canvases flanked the stage of the Fader Fort on the Bowery, the Friendly Fires posed in front of his Alfred Hitchcock LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL stencils. But Mr. Brainwash's music-world overlap also includes the Warhol-cribbing cover art of Madonna's Celebration; though lately, he's gotten attention for his involvement in the "Roger & Me"-esque Banksy-affiliated "documentary" that premiered at Sundance last month. In any case, MBW is something of a contentious figure: he's often accused of being a conceptual sham perpetrated by anonymous art-star Banksy. Don't have to dig deep for supporting evidence--nevermind the man's moniker, Mr. Brainwash has built a career out of pop-music-star portraits made of broken records. Such images were also the bulk of his solo show that opened on Valentine's Day in 15,00-square-foot Meatpacking District space; Sam Horine's photographs of the Beatles, Jay-Z, and one giant boombox below.
