French-born filmmaker Thierry Guetta took on the moniker of Mr. Brainwash after expatriating to Los Angeles. Armed with wheat paste, spray cans, brushes and paint buckets, Mr. Brainwash set aside the video camera and attacked the streets in 2006 with stencils and posters of beloved icons and quickly became a renowned figure in the burgeoning street art scene alongside Banksy, Space Invader, and other urban art brinkmen. Playful and colourful with a hint of mischief, each work is a journey through his pop culture wonderland. His works have been collected on all continents and have attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors to his massive solo art shows. He has created cover artwork, album campaigns, music videos, and installations for a variety of the most iconic figures and brands including Madonna, Michael Jackson, Coca-Cola, Levi's, Mercedes, and many others. With critical essays by art historians Eleanor Heartney and Donald Kuspit, this fully illustrated volume is the first full treatment of the artist available to the book trade.

Featuring a wide variety of new, unseen material and serves as a retrospective on Mr. Brainwash’s career, thus far, It’s a WonderFul World follows his unique and captivating journey as an artist, from filming street artists to becoming a worldwide phenomenon. With personal pieces from Mr. Brainwash’s past, it includes never-before-seen photos from Mr. Brainwash’s time entrenched in the street art scene. Mr. Brainwash has always been known for the large scale of his work. From his 80,000 square foot Los Angeles solo show in 2011 to a six-story tall Queen Elizabeth II, in her coronation attire, holding a Union Jack spray can, which was installed on the side of the Old Sorting Office in London. This book is no different. It is an exploration into the mind of one of this generation’s true art provocateurs. The book is an eclectic mixture of art, photography, and inspiration. A project seven years in the making, this book reflects Mr. Brainwash’s style and how he has bridged the gap between this art and his life — becoming a living embodiment of his words and his art.
While hiding from the limelight, Banksy has made himself into one of the world's best-known living artists. His pieces have fetched millions of dollars at prestigious auction houses. He was nominated for an Academy Award for his film Exit Through the Gift Shop. Once viewed as vandalism, his work is now venerated; fans have gone so far as to dismantle the walls that he has painted on for collection and sale. But as famous as Banksy is, he is also utterly unknown—he conceals his real name, hides his face, distorts his voice, and reveals his identity to only a select few. Who is this man that has captivated millions? How did a graffiti artist from Bristol, England, find himself at the center of an artistic movement? How has someone who goes to such great lengths to keep himself hidden achieved such great notoriety? And is his anonymity a necessity to continue his vandalism—or a marketing tool to make him ever more famous? Now, in the first ever full-scale investigation of the artist, reporter Will Ellsworth-Jones pieces together the story of Banksy, building up a picture of the man and the world in which he operates. He talks to his friends and enemies, those who knew him in his early, unnoticed days, and those who have watched him try to come to terms with his newfound fame and success. And he explores the contradictions of a champion of renegade art going to greater and greater lengths to control his image and his work. Banksy offers a revealing glimpse at an enigmatic figure and a riveting account of how a self-professed vandal became an international icon—and turned the art world upside down in the process.
The United States has often been described as a melting pot, and many people who have immigrated to the U.S. from other countries in search of the American dream have contributed not just their cultural histories and traditions, but their artistic spirit as well. This book covers important immigrant artists such as the naturalist painter John James Audubon, Superman co-creator Joe Shuster, multimedia artist Yoko Ono, cartoonist Art Spiegelman, and the street artist Thierry Guetta (Mr. Brainwash). Immigrant artists have collectively helped to make America great through their tremendous impact on the visual arts.
Xavier Hufkens is pleased to present a two-venue exhibition of new paintings and collages by Los Angeles-based artist Sterling Ruby.0Ruby?s DRFTRS and WIDW series are two ever-evolving bodies of work that bear witness to the artist?s intense relationship with materials and his interest in issues such as sociocultural evolution, popular culture, and violence. 0The WIDW paintings (an acronym for ?window?), are executed in acrylic, oil paint, and collaged fragments of cardboard and textile on canvas. In their composite nature, they closely relate to the DRFTRS works on paper. But the materials used in this series reflect yet another form of archaeology: the excavation of the artist?s studio.00Exhibition: Xavier Hufkens Gallery, Brussels, Belgium (07.09.-20.10.2018).
9.5 Theses on Art and Class seeks to show how a clear understanding of class makes sense of what is at stake in a broad number of contemporary art's most persistent debates, from definitions of political art to the troubled status of "outsider" and street art to the question of how we maintain faith in art itself. Ben Davis currently lives and works in New York City where he is Executive Editor at Artinfo.
''Black people are not dark-skinned white people,'' says advertising visionary Tom Burrell. In fact, they are a lot more. They are survivors of the Middle Passage and centuries of humiliation and deprivation, who have excelled against the odds, constantly making a way out of ''no way! '' At this point in history, the idea of black inferiority should have had a ''Going-Out-of-Business Sale.'' After all, Barack Obama has reached the Promised Land. Yet, as Brainwashed: Challenging the Myth of Black Inferiority testifies, too much of black America is still wandering in the wilderness. In this powerful examination of ''the greatest propaganda campaign of all time'' - the masterful marketing of black inferiority - Burrell poses 10 provocative questions that will make black people look in the mirror and ask why, nearly 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, so many blacks still think like slaves. Brainwashed is not a reprimand; it is a call to deprogram ourselves of self-defeating attitudes and actions. Racism is not the issue; how we respond to racism is the issue. We must undo negative brainwashing and claim a new state of race-based self-esteem and self-actualization.
As a third-generation New Yorker who was born, bred, and educated there, Jake Dobkin was such a fan of his hometown that he started Gothamist, a popular and acclaimed website with a focus on news, events, and culture in the city, and “Ask a Native New Yorker” became one of its most popular columns. The book version features all original writing and aims to help newbies evolve into real New Yorkers with humor and a command of the facts. In 48 short essays and 11 sidebars, the book offers practical information about transportation, apartment hunting, and even cultivating relationships for anyone fresh to the Big Apple. Subjects include “Why is New York the greatest city in the world?,” “Where should I live?,” “Where do you find peace and quiet when you feel overwhelmed?,” and “Who do I have to give up my subway seat to?” Part philosophy, part anecdote collection, and part no-nonsense guide, Ask a Native New Yorker will become the default gift for transplants to New York, whether they’re here for internships, college, or starting a new job.
What would it take to turn you into a suicide bomber? How would you interrogate a member of Al Qaeda? With access to formerly classified documentation and interviews from the CIA, the U.S. Army, MI5, MI6, and the British Intelligence Corps, acclaimed journalist Dominic Streatfeild traces the history of the world's most secret psychological procedure. From the cold war to the height of today's war on terror, groups as dissimilar as armies, religious cults, and advertising agencies have been accused of brainwashing. But what does this mean? Is it possible to erase memories or to implant them artificially? Do heavy-metal records contain subliminal messages? Do religious cults brainwash recruits? What were the CIA and MI6 doing with LSD in the 1950s? How far have the world's militaries really gone? From the author of the definitive history of cocaine, Brainwash is required reading in an era of cutting-edge and often controversial interrogation practices. More than just an examination of the techniques used by the CIA, the KGB, and the Taliban, it is also a gripping, full history of the heated efforts to master the elusive, secret techniques of mind control.
