I took this photo in LA, done by local Parisian artists Mr. Brainwash, (aka Thierry Guetta). Notice I did not call him graffiti artist, he isn’t really your typical law breaking bandit. He blends historical references with pop culture and iconic images. I saw his show, in 2008, where he used anything from old vinyl albums, books, vintage stereo’s, cars, and lots of other found objects. I love seeing his “Life is Beautiful ” image on my way to work. I can’t wait for the next show. Looks like Belle Sauvage found some inspiration from his artwork too!
