Mr Brainwash is the moniker of Los Angeles-based filmmaker and Pop street artist Thierry Guetta. Mr. Brainwash has spent the better part of the last decade attempting to make the ultimate street art documentary. Meanwhile, inspired by his subjects, he has emerged as a prolific figure on the international art scene with his highly visible, pop-art inspired murals of celebrities.

In June 2008, Mr Brainwash debuted one of LA hottest exhibitions, Life is Beautiful – a massively successful survey of the French-born transplant’s work, held at the old CBS Studios Building on Sunset Boulevard. In addition to his widely recognized, Life is Beautiful featured such larger than life installations as a 20-foot robot constructed of old televisions, a life size recreation of Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks and a pyramid made from 20,000 books. His piece Campbell’s Tomato Spray, a take on Andy Warhol’s Campbell Soup’s Can, was featured on the cover of LA Weekly.

Mr. Brainwash’s work has garnered mainstream acclaim, and in 2009, Madonna enlisted him to design the cover of her greatest hits album, Celebration, as well as 15 different covers for the accompanying vinyl’s, singles and DVDs. you can see all of them in the Mr. Brainwash Meatpacking exhibition.
