Mr. Brainwash is the moniker of Los Angeles-based filmmaker and Pop artist Thierry Guetta. In 2008, Mr. Brainwash made his art show debut with one of Los Angeles's most memorable solo exhibitions, “Life is Beautiful.” Originally scheduled to open for only two weeks, the exhibit was extended for three months, attracting more than 30,000 visitors. In 2010, Mr. Brainwash made his New York solo debut as he unveiled his exhibition “Icons”, in New York’s West Village. The show featured paintings and silk screens of world icons, portraits of music legends constructed of broken records and large-scale sculptural installations. Considered as one of the most prolific and talked about artists of today, Mr. Brainwash is also the subject of Banksy's documentary "Exit Through The Gift Shop." His work hinges on the idea that anything is possible in his practice. “Art has no walls. Anybody can be an artist,” he says. “Art has no rules. There’s no manual.”
