Mr. Brainwash:

We walked into a gallery in SOHO the other day and came across this awesome instillation by none other than, Mr. Brainwash... If you aren't familiar with who he is, here is a small recap...

"Mr. Brainwash ("MBW") is allegedly a pseudonym for Thierry Guetta, aka Cyprian[1], but widely believed to be a fictional character. He is presented in the 2010 film Exit Through The Gift Shop as a French citizen who now lives in Los Angeles, having been a proprietor of a clothing store and videographer who evolved into a street artist and gallery artist, influenced by the street artists he claims to have documented through video over the years. The film says that Thierry Guetta was first introduced to street art by his cousin, the French street artist, Invader. The film includes what it claims to be authentic documentation of Space Invader, Shepard Fairey, Banksy and other well-known street artists at work on the streets. The film is directed by Banksy and includes much participation by Fairey." -wikipedia
