Mr. Brainwash (a.k.a. MBW; b. Thierry Guetta) is one of California’s most prolific street artists. Originally an eccentric French videographer, Mr. Brainwash began his career in 1999 documenting the lives and work of various street artists such as Banksy and Shepard Fairey. Shortly after his initial introduction to Banksy, Mr. Brainwash made the decision to transition between voyeur of the arts to practical artist. Mr. Brainwash’s uniformly subversive style fuses historic pop imagery and contemporary cultural iconography to create his own Pop art/graffiti hybrid. The development of this style has catapulted the street artist to international stardom. Mr. Brainwash’s first solo show, “Life is Beautiful,” was held in LA in June 2008; the exhibition featured over 100 works in a 15,000 square-foot TV studio. Since then, Mr. Brainwash has collaborated with Madonna on her greatest hits album cover as well as with numerous other street artists on the development of the street art film “Exit through the Gift Shop." Mr. Brainwash currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
