This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in France as Thierry Guetta, Mr. Brainwash is a documentary film maker living in Los Angeles.  While working on his documetary about street art and artists, he changed from an observer to a participant and began making his own street art.  This is where the mystery begins, as many voices claim that his artistry is not genuine and in fact  Mr. Brainwash was created to dupe the art world and mock the art factory system.

His work emulates the styles and artistic concepts of other well-known street artists including Banksy and Shepard Fairey, both of whom supposedly collaborated with Guetta on his documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop.

In June of 2008, Mr. Brainwash held a solo art show titled Life is Beautiful at the former CBS Studios in Los Angeles, showing over three hundred paintings, sculptures and prints alongside an installation made from 100,000 shoes and a life-size re-creation of Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks.

"MBW does not fit the stereotype of your average street vandal.  His artistic process chiefly consists of throwing random modern cultural icons into a blender and turning it up to eleven. The results are by turns profound, provocative and inspirational." (OBEY online).

On Valentine's Day 2010, another solo show titled Icons opened in the New York City meat packing district to great public interest.
