  • Visitor Information

Mr Brainwash (aka Thierry Guetta), the French street artist, brings a collection of contemporary paintings and sculptural installations inspired by 20th-century cultural icons to The Old Sorting Office , a giant space located next to the British Museum . Mr Brainwash rose to prominence via the 2010 Banksy film Exit Through A Gift Shop and he created the cover art for Madonna's Celebration album. This is his first UK solo show and visitors can expect plenty of cultural street art combinations featuring the likes of Bob Marley, Marilyn Monroe and even Mickey Mouse.
