“When Mr. Brainwash decides to take over a space, it’s unbelievable the amount of attention it receives,” Brian Swarts, president of Taglialatella Galleries, which represents the artist, told Artnet News in an email. “When we opened our new gallery space in Chelsea in 2016, we gave him both floors of the gallery to do whatever he wanted—nothing but white walls. His truck showed up with over a hundred works and he spent the night splatter-painting our staircase, our staff kitchen and completely ‘Brainwashed’ the space.

The iconic show Friends made its television debut 25 years ago and we have been captivated by it ever since. Even 15 years after its final episode. The show made an impact on pop culture as we know it and brought many things to the Central Perk coffee table including Jennifer Aniston’s signature ‘Rachel’ hair cut. The show made an impact in the art world as well. In particular, for artist Burton Morris and his pop art designs.
