Mr Brainwash hits London…

A new tourist attraction has popped up on the corner of New Oxford Street and Museum Street in London:

On one side there is a massive picture of The Queen holding a can of paint and a paintbrush, looking quite pleased with herself, next to a soldier who might well be Prince Philip.

On the other side there is a huge mural of The Beatles wearing bandanas.

I’m pretty sure both pieces are by Mr Brainwash, judging by this and this.

Just past The Beatles, there were also these pieces:

I’m not sure if these are Mr Brainwash or another artist, but they’re pretty cool!

    Great find …I’m not familiar with Mr Brainwash… but I especially love the punk-rock Mona Lisa!

      Thanks Rachel! I think Mr Brainwash is a friend of Banksy’s, or at least someone who knows him. I think he’s based in LA, so I guess he must be on his summer holidays! šŸ˜‰

      Thanks for your comment. I haven’t seen Exit Through the Gift Shop yet. I don’t really know anything about street art, but I do like these pictures! šŸ™‚
