MR. BRAINWASH
PORTFOLIO
INFO

Mr. Brainwash is the moniker of filmmaker and Street Pop artist, Thierry Guetta. Born and raised in France and based in Los Angeles, Mr. Brainwash has been pushing pop culture’s envelope for almost a decade, bringing his art to the street, the gallery, and on screen.   

Armed with wheat paste, spray cans, brushes and paint buckets, Mr. Brainwash started attacking the streets in 2006 with stencils and posters of beloved icons from Billie Holiday to John Lennon.  In Paris and Los Angeles, his work quickly caught the eyes of the public, and Mr. Brainwash emerged from the underground, quickly becoming a renowned figure in the burgeoning street art scene.  

Mr. Brainwash’s first solo show, “Life is Beautiful”, opened in the summer of 2008. Mounted in a former T.V. studio in Hollywood, it was the perfect place for the arrival of the art scene’s rambunctious new player.  The show was so eagerly anticipated that it garnered the cover of LA Weekly, one of Los Angeles’ most circulated publications. “Life is Beautiful” opened with a tremendous thunder, attracting thousands of people who lined the streets for blocks.  Featuring a 20-foot robot, a pyramid made of 20,000 books, and a life-size recreation of Edward Hopper’s “Nighthawks,” Life is Beautiful was an extremely successful debut. The show extended for three months, attracting a total of 50,000 visitors, and went on to become the biggest art opening in L.A. and one of the most memorable solo shows in LA’s history. This was just the beginning.
