The Mr. Brainwash Icons Exhibit debuted in New York City last week in the meatpacking district. Mr. Brainwash, a French filmmaker turned artist, is known for taking a lot of influence from the famed Mr. Warhol as a good majority of his work features famous actors and musicians both past and present, saturated in random technicolor streaks.

The Mr. Brainwash Icons Exhibit seems more of just a reprisal than anything truly original. Make of it what you will, I don't find anything really inspiring by crudely painting over celebrities' mug shots. Stats for Warholesque Celeb Portraits Trending: Older & Warm
