    Mr. Brainwash on La Brea 

    brainwash

    because i am covering some vacationers over the holidays, i come into work at 6am, but leave around 2:30pm

    thats the bad news, the good news is i am able to do fun things like take in the Mr. Brainwash exhibit on La Brea.

    i saw the Exit Thru the Gift Shop film which was cool and all, but it made me sorta hate Terry, the artist

    not personally, personally he seems like a funny, sweet dad who figured out a way to turn the art world in LA inside out.

    i hate him because in doing that he, in my opinion, diminishes actual artists like Warhol, Banksy, and Shepard Fairey.

    being in his 5-story sprawling building yesterday afternoon didn’t change my opinion.

    some of the pieces are really good, but most felt like discarded ideas from true artists vomited all over the walls and floors.

    too much of a bad thing.

    anyways, i will have more photos later so you can be the judge since art is in the eye of the beholder.
