Biography

Mr Brainwash is the moniker of eccentric French filmmaker Thierry Guetta. After years filming the likes of Banksy and Shepard Fairey, he has put down the camera and taken up the spray-can and become one of California's most prolific street artists. A maverick of the art world, Mr Brainwash has a trademark positive message and playful spirit that has taken the world by storm. Art Lounge international has built a huge following in the Leamington and Warwickshire area from Brainwash's works, we just adore the the work!

 

In June 2008, Mr Brainwash made his art show debut with one of Los Angeles' most memorable solo exhibitions; Life is Beautiful, held at the historic CBS Studios on Sunset Boulevard. It featured over 100 works, including a 20-foot robot made of old televisions, a life-size recreation of Edward Hopper's Nighthawks and a pyramid made from 20,000 books, and had fans queuing round the block to get in on its opening night. Mr. Brainwash's work continued to garner recognition from art collectors and street-art enthusiasts alike.
