Mr. Brainwash Life is Beautiful Opening Night

My GraffHead credentials could not get me into what seems to be one of the hottest art exhibits in Los Angeles. Mr. Brainwash AKA MBW held his first exhibit on Sunset Blvd in the old CBS building on Wednesday, June 18. The exhibit is called Life is Beautiful. Shepard Fairey was DJing at the event.

The line wrapped around the block and I estimate that there were 500 people waiting to get in. Of course it did not hurt that he was on the cover of the current LA Weekly magazine.

Here are some pictures from outside the exhibit. I will post some more, once I actually make it inside.

I disagree. I think his exhibit was excellent. Extremely creative. Maybe some of pictures from the show will change your mind.
