Madonna Celebration Cover Artwork

This is the cover art for Madonna's greatest hits album, titled Celebration, which will be released on September 28.

Street and pop artist Mr. Brainwash gave this classic image of Madonna a reinvention that is reminiscent of Warhol, but with a street edge. I am loving the simplicity and style of Mr. Brainwash's treatment to this album cover and this style of art reminds me of Banksy and Shepard Fairey's art pieces.

Madonna has always been highly attuned to visionary, influential and trend setting artists and it's not surprising that she has acquired Mr. Brainwash's talented services. But the looming question that remains is whether Mr. Brainwash will survive the "Madonna death touch", as mostly every creative person that Madonna has worked with has either ended up with a road block in their career that they can't ever seem to overcome or resulted in a complete demise of their career (think Rupert Everett, William Orbit, David La Chapelle, Jellybean, Guy Ritchie, Me'Shell Ndegeocello, Sandra Bernhardt, Mirwais, Antonio Banderas, Tony Ward, Alek Keshishian...). Time will tell.
