Mr.Brainwash è l'artista che è riuscito a raggiungere la sintesi perfetta tra Pop e Street Art. Nelle sue opere grandi personaggi dell'immaginario collettivo, come Albert Einstein, Charlie Chaplin, Hitchcock e Mickey e Minnie prendono vita in un tripudio di omaggi alla cultura pop attraverso un magistrale uso delle tecniche Street. Colature di vernice, collage, pennellate e stencil si fondono perfettamente in composizioni sempre diverse ma legate tra loro dal pensiero che sottintende l'intera poetica dell'artista: Life is beautiful.

Le sue mostre sono attese in tutto il mondo, le sue Limited Edition registrano sold out in pochi minuti e i suoi pezzi unici vengono contesi dalle più prestigiose case d'asta.
