Unique work by Mr. Brainwash, Smile was realized in 2022 using mixed media on paper. It is hand-signed by the artist and measures 76,2x55,8 cm.
The protagonist of the artwork is a child holding a camera. His stenciled figure leans in slightly, looking into the lens, in an attempt to get the perfect shot. This is a recurring subject in Mr. Brainwash art, which combines stencils, collage, dripping and spray painting, resulting in colourful and harmonious compositions.
The camera is related to Mr. Brainwash biography. Thierry Guetta - this is his real name - has always intertwined his passion for urban art with that of photography and video-making. His story is narrated in the Banksy-directed documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop (2010).
By inserting details reminiscent of the great masters of Pop art, Mr. Brainwash enriches the background with curious references to his major sources of inspiration. In the dialogue between the bright colours and the subject of the work, rendered in black and white, an unstoppable flow of positive energy takes place, eventually nourishing every detail and reaching the eye of the observer.
Among the numerous inscriptions floating on the coloured wall behind the child, the artist writes his motto in an imprecise and child-like font. For Mr. Brainwash, "Life is Beautiful" is a true mantra: through his works, the street artist intends to "brainwash" his audience, in order to impart his undying passion for colours, life and the neighbour.
