Mr Brainwash or Banksy?

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

Finally got around to watching Banksy’s debut film/documentary, ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop,’ this past weekend featuring Mr Brainwash aka Thierry Guetta. Mr Brainwash is an over the top insane person turned street artist. From the streets of Paris comes this eccentric little man with a desire to film about nothing leading him on a path to art. In the end he pulls off this miraculous exhibition in LA entitled ‘Life is Beautiful’ showcasing an enormous amount of pop/street art. Word on the street is that Mr Brainwash is Bankys’s Borat and the art is really Banksy’s. Regardless the work is dope. He still has an exhibition running in NYC in the East Village called ‘ICONS’ More after the jump…

Kanye West Runaway Short Film

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Kanye teamed up with Hype Williams to put together this 35 min short film that premiered in Paris last week. There are some nice visuals to go with a simple story of a scantily clad Phoenix crashing to earth and then being introduced to our society by Kanye. The music is the gem though, showcasing tracks off of his upcoming album ‘My Dark Twisted Fantasy’ Leave it to Kanye to once again do something different. Haters keep hating, but I love his artistic work.
