Mr. Brainwash Life is Beautiful, 2020 is a steel sculpture that follows the signature style of bright, colorful graffiti and superimposed images of iconic figures in popular culture. Painted silver as the initial layer, the work contains a multitude of dripping paints that range from all colors of the spectrum, with noticeable lines of green as they cascade down the work. The work reads ‘Life is Beautiful’, while also containing the words “SMILE” and “DREAMS” and "LOVE IS THE ANSWER" on the base, with images of the Warholian soup cans turned by Mr. Brainwash into vegetable-flavored aerosol sprays in the lower right corner, and a superimposed image of the iconic Banksy stencils incorporated with the balloon girl and the monkey with a signboard. The entire composition is layered with references to the art world, consumerism, and culture that has dominated our society in the last half century. The work takes full use of its compositional space, giving the viewer a look into the saturated, multi-layered, witty, and unique world of Mr. Brainwash.
