Yesterday me and Lauren attended the Mr. Brainwash Exhibition at the Old Sorting Office on New Oxford Street. I only heard the exhibition was happening a week before, and straight away I wanted to attend as I enjoy the street art/graffiti craze.
All the installations fill the area on the ground floor, upon walking in you are immediately greeted with all the pieces of art, and instantly you can tell a lot of time was spent creating the works.
|A lot of the work took on this theme|
|Photo doesn't do it justice, these paint tins were huge!|
|Made entirely out of car tyres, amazing!|
I loved every part of the exhibition, all the art looked great! I enjoy this type of art, I believe the work doesn't have hidden meanings (which isn't a bad thing...). The pieces are clearly mass produced with stencils, and other such materials, expressing there was no hidden meaning them, purely showing off some creativity, which I believe is the main purpose of art.
Art doesn't need to have the heading meaning, and explanations, furthermore these thoughts are always based on personal opinion from each individual. I am sure some critics will say this art does have thought provoking meanings, and I am certain some critics would say this not art. I can definitely see both sides of the opinions, definitely the not art opinion. But ultimately I love it, the works are great to look at, and if I had the money a few pieces would certainly be purchased for my flat.
The exhibition is free entry and carries on until 7th September, and I strongly suggest you attend if you haven't already, it's fantastic.
I want to attend more exhibitions like this, have you been?
