Mr BrainWash


Mr. Brainwash ("MBW") is a pseudonym for Thierry Guetta , a supposed French videographer, street artist and pop artist who is purported to be living in Los Angeles.

A brief narrative of Guetta's personal history, as well as the story of his introduction to the world of street art, are told in the 2010 film Exit Through The Gift Shop, which claims to include original footage of street artists at work, shot by Guetta over a period of eight years.

The uniformly subversive artwork attributed to Guetta strongly emulates the styles and artistic concepts of other well-known street artists including Banksy and Shepard Fairey, both of whom supposedly collaborated with Guetta on Exit Through the Gift Shop. LikeBanksy, Guetta employs famous and historic images, many of which are protected by copyright, and amends the originals in slight or significant ways to achieve an ironic and often politically or socially biting effect.
