Thierry Guetta aka “Mr. Brainwash” was a French immigrant living in LA who became an overnight success through Banksy’s popular street art documentary, Exit Through the Giftshop.
Despite having no real artistic background, other than a cousin who happens to be a French street artist, the vintage clothing store manager held his first show under his new moniker Mr Brainwash. He even attended the Oscars after the film was nominated in the best documentary category. But Bristolian stencil artist Banksy was conspicuously absent from the ceremony.
Since then, Guetta has designed a Madonna album cover, worked with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and exhibited his Jeff Koons meets Warholian-inspired pop art all over the world.
