A provocative figure in street art, Mr. Brainwash (a pseudonym for Thierry Guetta) appropriates images from popular culture and art history and incorporates them into his wry screen prints and sculptures. Mr. Brainwash’s colorful texts and iconography reflect the artist’s graffiti-inspired sensibility and undermine his original source material. The artist rose to prominence as the main figure in the 2010 Banksy-directed film Exit Through the Gift Shop. Today, his work sells for up to six figures on the secondary market. Mr. Brainwash has also designed album covers for the likes of Madonna and Rick Ross.
