MBW Paints Mural of Obama, King & Parks on La Brea
Overnight, french documentary-filmmaker-turned-street-artist Mr. Brainwash, or MBW, took his wall and redid it for inauguration day. On the side it states:
Rosa Parks sat,
so Martin Luther King Jr. could walk.
Martin Luther King Jr. walked,
so that Barack Obama could run.
Barack Obama ran,
so we could fly.
Last month, the wall had an Einstein mural and before that it showed Star Trek, Madonna/Britney Spears, Marion Cotillard and the Mona Lisa doing some mooning.
