LA based Mr. Brainwash has really got the art world in a whirl – some still believe he’s a lucky man who made the grade, whilst others suspect a puppet who can see the strings. Behind all the smoke and mirrors you’ll find the Bristolian street art enigma himself, Banksy, whose wonderful Academy Award nominated documentary ‘Exit Through The Gift Shop’ (2010), casts Thierry Guetta / Mr. Brainwash as an unexpected cause célèbre.
His exhibition at London’s Opera Gallery on New Bond Street kicks off today and runs until October 31st:
‘Exit Through The Gift Shop’ has been showing on More4 during recent weeks – catch it if you can. Further info here:
