Mr. Brainwash

Atlanta is Beautiful

2021 | Acrylic and neon

Atlanta is Beautiful is a mural by contemporary artist Thierry Guetta, more commonly known by his moniker Mr. Brainwash. A fusion of street and pop art, this work features a collage of notable figures from Atlanta’s rich history including Henry “Hank” Aaron, Bernie Marcus, Arthur M. Blank, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott King, Representative John Lewis, President Jimmy Carter, Rosalynn Carter, and Ambassador Andrew Young. The bright neon lights remind us "life is beautiful," while the wall of familiar images, landmarks, and Atlantans overlooking Mercedes-Benz Stadium remind us of their beauty.

Thierry Guetta, aka Mr. Brainwash, has been challenging the boundaries of contemporary art for more than a decade. The French-born, Los Angeles-based artist first came to prominence as the subject of the Banksy-produced, Academy Award-nominated documentary, Exit Through The Gift Shop. Since then, he's held successful solo shows in Miami, NYC, London, Seoul, and Tokyo, among other locations, each exhibition offering vibrant multi-medium works and immersive installations that combine the iconic imagery of Pop Art with the subversive language of Street Art. Today, Mr. Brainwash is a globally renowned multi-medium artist who navigates the worlds of film, music, design, fashion, sports and philanthropy, having produced work in collaboration with the likes of Madonna, Michael Jackson, Michelle Obama, and Pope Francis, among others.
