Mr. Brainwash - One of the best street artists of our time

Mr. Brainwash (Thierry Guetta) started off filming artists as he was attempting to make the ultimate street art documentary. Being more of a visionary-type of person, Mr. Brainwash eventually became inspired by his pop art subjects whom he filmed and started creating his own artwork.
He hit the streets from Los Angeles to Paris with spray-painted stencils and posters of his pop art encouraged images. Through this, he became known as a prominent and leading figure in the international street art scene.

Mr. Brainwash made his first art show introduction with one of Los Angeles' most memorable solo exhibitions, "Life is Beautiful".

In 2009, Mr. Brainwash was asked by Madonna to design the cover of her greatest hits compilation, "Celebration".

In 2010, Mr. Brainwash made his New York debut with his exhibition, "Icons". The show was a 15-square foot exhibition featuring a compilation of large-scale installations, paintings, silk-screens, and portraits of music legends.

Along with being one of the greatest street artists of our time, Mr. Brainwash is also the subject of Banksy's 2010 documentary, "Exit Through the Gift Shop". The documentary shows the journey beginning with someone who was just filming street artists, to where Mr. Brainwash is now. The documentary features interviews from notable street artists including Sheppard Fairey and Banksy himself. 

Later in 2010, Mr. Brainwash took over the art-scene in Miami when he turned a 25,square foot space into his showcase called, "Under Construction". The show featured playful installations, such as a monster made out of traffic cones, which drew the attention of both art lovers and collectors in Miami.
