Mr. Brainwash Tomato Spray, 2019 takes the world-famous image of Andy Warhol’s Campbell Soup cans and transforms it into an equally iconic, eye-catching, and surprising object: a paint spray can, a staple of graffiti artists, adorned in a Campbell soup can label. The word SOUP on the label is replaces with the word SPRAY, a tongue-in-cheek appropriation of the Warholian object which itself was an artistic appropriation of consumerism. The Tomato Spray is echoed through the background, appearing in stenciled colors of blue, yellow, and pink. It appears time and time again in Mr. Brainwash’s work, a witty symbol of the artist’s message. Mixed in with the Tomato Spray are Lichtenstein-inspired comic book-style words, as well as Mickey Mouse, Banksy’s Balloon Girl, Keith Haring’s cartoon dog, and abundant splashes of paint that would make Jackson Pollock. By referencing these iconic modern and contemporary artists who have all had an enormous influence on the art world, Mt. Brainwash places himself in their long line of culture-changing mastery. Though modest in size, this incredible work is overflowing with cultural and artistic references, all done in a bright, quick and playful style that is the hallmark of Mr. Brainwash’s oeuvre.
Created in 2019, Mr. Brainwash Tomato Spray 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.
