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…

Simpsons x Bansky

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

I was watching the Simpsons last night and noticed a Bansky tagged intro video. The mysterious Bansky is a world renowned street-aritst known for his stencil tag art. He made his directorial debut this summer with the movie ‘Exit through the Gift Shop’ and has some permanent art installations in various museums around the world. The Simpsons video is a pretty dark statement on consumer pop culture but I wouldn’t expect anything else from Mr. Bansky. Some screencaps after the jump…
