"MR BRAINWASH IS A FORCE OF NATURE, HE'S A PHENOMENON"
Mr Brainwash exploded onto the LA scene in 2008. His debut show, Life is Beautiful, transformed a cavernous disused TV studio into a street art spectacular which attracted over 50,000 visitors, making it the most visited private exhibition in history. By the end of the first week his sales had reached almost $1m, he was on the cover of LA Weekly and the original five day exhibition had been extended to run for three months. Overnight, Mr Brainwash, AKA Thierry Guetta, a previously unknown French street artist, had become what Banksy described as “a phenomenon”.
