Mr. Brainwash Mickey, 2020 features the ubiquitous and innocuous figure of one of the most beloved icons of all time: Mickey Mouse. Kicking up the toe of one shoe, the Disney star stands smiling, evoking all the innocent charm of 1960s cartoons. But around him, a dynamic world of cultural references, colors, and myriad of imagery places him in an exciting and playful space, created by the unique and witty mind of Mr. Brainwash. Conjuring the eye-catching aesthetics of urban graffiti art, the work mixes in images of Warholian soup cans and the graphic forms of Keith Haring’s barking dog. Layered with the images are splashes of bold colors, dripping through the background and over the jovial form of Mickey, playing with the illusion of foreground and surface, giving the work on paper the strikingly large aura of a wall mural. The composition takes full use of the surface, richly dominating it and extending beyond the edges, giving the viewer a sense of an entire universe swirling with pop art imagery, cultural hallmarks, and graphic shapes of color, hinted to us by Mr. Brainwash’s exuberant and clever artistic style.
Created in 2020, Mr. Brainwash Mickey is a silkscreen and mixed media on paper. This work is hand signed by Mr. Brainwash (Garges-lès-Gonesse 1966 - ). This is a unique and original work.
