Artist Thierry Guetta, known under the pseudonym Mr. Brainwash, has earned a global following for his provocative works. His magical mashup of street and pop art was the subject of Academy Award-nominated documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop, and his collaborations range from album covers for Madonna to partnerships with brands like Hublot, Coca-Cola and Marvel Comics.
For this issue, Mr. Brainwash created an original work of art for Modern Luxury's The Hope Issue cover, titled "Hold On To Hope." "I wanted to do a balloon representing America all together," he shares of his inspiration for the work. "It's love; it's the heart-the whole [country] together, and we're not going to give up. We are going to make it happen, and we are going to fight for it. We are going to win because we have hope."
