Mr. Brainwash, aka MBW, is no stranger to Madonna (remember his Optical illusion mural of Britney and Madonna kissing?). Now one of his ubiquitous street poster works of the pop singer has been chosen as the album cover art for her "Celebration" album, due out on September 29th.

"The image being used for the cover is a remake of Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe print, signature of Mr. Brainwash, and will display a classic image of Madonna, first seen in 1990 on the pages of Bazaar Magazine," explains a blurb on the webpage of Guy Hepner Contemporary in West Hollywood. The gallery carries MBW works, but currently does not have this Madonna image.
