LONDON.- Maddox Gallery, London is presenting new work by world renowned street artist Mr Brainwash. Keep Smiling is the Los Angeles-based artist's first UK exhibition for six years and is being exhibited across Maddox Gallery’s three London locations in Mayfair and Westbourne Grove. A provocative figure in the world of street art, Mr. Brainwash is known for his irreverent brand of appropriation and Keep Smiling is injected with his trademark undercurrent of mischief, humour and optimism. Classical paintings are playfully transformed while ornate mirrors are struck with flashes of neon and vibrant painted messages. Known for his playful take on the historical, the artist mischievously alters traditional impressionist style paintings and historical portraits by adding contemporary iconography. [More]
