Thierry Guetta, internationally known as Mr. Brainwash, followed and documented street artists on film beginning in 1999, ultimately filming the most famous street artist: Banksy.  

At the encouragement of Banksy, Guetta began creating his own street art and had his first solo show as Mr. Brainwash in 2008. Mr. Brainwash’s artistic evolution is documented in the Banksy-directed and Oscar-nominated film, Exit Through the Gift Shop.

Known for his Pop Art feel and street-art style, Guetta created a series of original pieces using broken vinyl records and mixed media. Music icons such as Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Frank Sinatra have all been given the Mr. Brainwash touch. Works of other artists are available and commissions of other artists are possible.
