Mr Brainwash is on fire. His solo art show opens in just two weeks, and he's been pasting and painting his icons all over LA.

So which gallery is he showing at? None. Try the recently abandoned CBS TV studio in Hollywood on Sunset Blvd. MBW has been holed up there for weeks preparing for the show, which opens June 18. Here's just a small sample of some of the pieces up around town…

Check his website for details and updates at He will also be giving away 200 signed prints to people who attend. That's a hell of a lot better than the usual plastic glass of Charles Shaw.

This Billie Holiday painting off the north side of Melrose east of Fairfax is excellent. More after the jump.
