In honor of the 49 victims of the mass shooting at Pulse Night Club in Orlando, Fl., Mr. Brainwash in collaboration with Nats Getty (founder of Strike Oil) and The Girls Lounge created and unveiled a mural dedicated to the victims at the location of the tragedy.
It was the first time that Pulse Night Club opened its doors to the public since the massacre earlier in June. The community was invited and encouraged to add final contributions to the mural, with a performance by DJ Kim And and Brendan Reilly during the ceremony.
Mr Brainwash gave fast-food a spotlight for Art Basel: Miami Beach by creating an interactive mural of Burger King’s Whopper and fries on the outside wall of GAB Studio.
There was also a sort of “throne” you can sit on with a crown above your head.
Miami is the birthplace of Burger King, the fast-food joint first opened in 1954, and home of The Original Whopper Burger. Mr Brainwash paid tribute to its origins by creating the interactive mural on Wynwood.
Mr Brainwash also kicked off Art Basel with a night of partying at WALL Lounge with friends Paris Hilton and Rick Ross.
Mr Brainwash commemorated Brooklyn’s past by creating a mural that pays tribute to John Augustus Roebling, who was an architectural pioneer and designer of the Brooklyn Bridge. His son, Charles Roebling, also completed one of the US’ oldest suspension bridges.
The mural is composed of sepia toned photographs and newspaper clippings and upon closer view you can see portraits of John and Charles Roebling.
To commemorate the Oscars and Exit Through The Gift Shop’s nomination into its Best Documentary category by the Academy, Mr Brainwash painted a mural on La Brea Ave. of the Oscar statuette wearing a hoodie guarded, and filmed, by Storm Troopers.
