Selected Works

Thierry Guetta, best known by his moniker Mr. Brainwash, was born in 1966 in Garges-lès-Gonesse, France.

The French-born Los Angeles-based street artist was a proprietor of a used clothing store, and amateur videographer who was first introduced to street art by his cousin, the street artist Invader, and who filmed street artists through the 2000’s and became an artist in his own right in a matter of weeks after an off-hand suggestion from Banksy.

The tipping point for Mr. Brainwash was his groundbreaking footage from the widely-acclaimed documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop. This Academy-nominated film demonstrates the evolution of the street art movement with Mr. Brainwash, who, alongside Banksy, brings the art to the masses.

Navigating between worlds of film, celebrity culture, music, and sports, Mr. Brainwash has designed album covers for Madonna, Rick Ross, and KYGO. His artwork was featured in films and television productions such as Molly’s Game, Billions, Shameless, and the Kardashians. Mr. Brainwash’s talents are showcased in creative partnerships with powerhouse brands like Hublot, Coca Cola, and Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee.  He also collaborated with world known soccer player Pelé, who joined the artist in splattering paint on select artwork.

For more than a decade Mr. Brainwash, has been pushing the envelope of contemporary art. The orchestrated collision of street art and pop art has been his balancing act.
