Best known for his 15 different covers for Madonna's greatest hits compilation Celebration, and his collaborative appearances in Banksy’s 2010 film Exit Through The Gift Shop, Thierry Guetta, better known as Mr Brainwash opens his first solo London solo show this Friday August 3. It's housed in the disused Royal Mail Old Sorting Office Space on London's New Oxford Street (close to the British museum) that made headlines with a Halloween rave back in 2010. Mr Brainwash’s work is centred round his mottos ‘Life Is Beautiful’ and ‘Never, Never Give Up’ and features icons of pop culture. The first 500 visitors when the doors open at 9am will receive a signed print. The show runs until August 31 at The Sorting Office 21-31 New Oxford Street, London WC1.
