Mr. Brainwash, ‘Homage to Muhammad Ali (Black Edition)’, 2016, Alpha 137 Gallery

After Muhammad Ali died, popular street artist Thierry Guetta (aka Mr. Brainwash) created this hand signed and numbered limited edition silkscreen called "Legend Forever" as a homage to "The Greatest". Within 15 seconds -- literally - of the work being offered for sale, the entire edition sold out completely. The present work is a black gradiant screenprint on hand torn archival art paper, hand finished with a silver flourish of paint. This limited edition print is hand signed and numbered from the edition of 80 by Mr. Brainwash, with his thumbprint on the back. Provenance impeccable as this was acquired directly from the artist.

About Mr. Brainwash

A provocative figure in the world of street art, Mr. Brainwash practices an irreverent brand of appropriation characterized by the use of copyrighted images from history, popular culture, and art history. The artist subtly alters the picture or its context, mischievously undermining the tone of the source material. Brainwash, a pseudonym for Thierry Guetta, is known for producing massive spectacles to display his art. He came to prominence through mounting large-scale public projects in his current home of Los Angeles and as the main figure in the Banksy-directed film Exit Through the Gift Shop. His work hinges on the idea that anything is possible in his practice. “Art has no walls. Anybody can be an artist,” he says. “Art has no rules. There’s no manual.”

French, b. 1966, Garges-lès-Gonesse, France, based in Los Angeles, CA, United States
