Here is our first look at the cover for “Celebration” created by street pop artist Mr. Brainwash who is best known for “throwing modern cultural icons into a blender and turning it up to eleven.” [source] We love it, it’s very old school Madonna.
Mr. Brainwash, the creator of Madonna’s “Celebration” album cover, started his career in France as a documentary film maker to become later a popular street artist. He currently resides in L.A and where he is a well known graffiti artist. His “Celebration” cover reprises the classic Madonna shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino that premiered on “Bazaar” magazine in 1990 blended with another iconic 1987 portrait by Alberto Tolot.
The images below are a few of his other Madonna-related creations.
