Marilyn Stays Safe, Masks Up

The rather annoying #ThugMarilyn trend seen on posters and T-shirts in recent years (with artwork featuring guns, scarves and other ‘gangsta’ accessories) has taken on a deeper meaning in the age of coronavirus and face-masks. Street artist Mr. Brainwash has produced a new Warhol-inspired work, ‘Marilyn Monroe 2020 “STAY SAFE” Cornia [sic] Virus Edition COVID-19,’ with a screenprint on sale for $3,500 via Artsy.
