Someone attempted to deface Banksy’s new Girl With A Pierced Eardrum mural just hours after it was discovered near the Bristol Marina, but failed, terribly. The haphazardly thrown black paint makes it look more like an unholy collaboration with Mr. Brainwash than it does a wanton act of vandalism. (Photo: IVTV News West Country) […]

Sadly, artist Mr. Brainwash is still a thing that exists. Even more depressing, he still gets hired to do commercial work. And still even more dreadful than that, he was recently commissioned by Century 21 to wheatpaste paint a big sloppy mural commemorating 9/11 right across the street from the World Trade Center site. The […]

Just days after Richard Prince triumphantly won his copyright lawsuit, just when we supposedly established that “law does not require that a new work of art comment on any of its source material to qualify as fair use” — today, appropriation rights take a step back. A California judge has ruled that Mr. Brainwash was, […]

The very hyped Mr. Brainwash show opens tomorrow at 1pm at his huge warehouse/studio on La Brea and Lexington in Los Angeles. Last night, 300 people lined up for a preview, but here are some images from a few hours ago. Your exclusive ANIMAL walk-through… and no crowds. Just lots and lots of crap upon […]

Here’s Space Invader making his mark on the Hollywood sign in an outtake from Banksy’s vid. He came, he pasted up, he hauled ass, but not before getting nabbed by the LAPD, with his cousin Mr. Brainwash filming all the way. Would the cops be this nice if the two weren’t… French? […]

Hey, Anne Hathaway. A New York contractor called and he wants his piece of plywood back. Since Hathaway’s boyfriend Adam Shulman unscrewed and carried off a gaudy Mr. Brainwash piece from the Meatpacking District this weekend (conveniently near a Mr. Brainwash show and paparazzi), the owner of the property, Ken Hart of H&H Builders says […]

This is the Deitch Wall this morning. Before Shepard Fairey left around 3am last night, he was good enough to answer a few questions on video about the new mural, Obama and Exit Through the Gift Shop. […]
