In 2009, Mr. Brainwash met with Banksy and assisted him in launching his Los Angeles show, Barely Legal. The two artists afterwards decided to make a documentary detailing life in the secretive graffiti art scene. Following the success of the film, Mr. Brainwash gained massive following with his exhibitions such as the one held at the Opera Gallery, London, and demand for his artwork only continues to rise.

Mr. Brainwash, the pseudonym for Thierry Guetta is a Pop Artist, street artist and videographer whose graffiti and contemporary pieces have become highly prized by collectors. Mr. Brainwash was born in Garges-lès-Gonesse, Paris, France, but relocated to Los Angeles when he was fifteen. The artist attended Fairfax High School for about a year, but later dropped out and began to organize events around Hollywood.
Mr. Brainwash later delved into business and sold vintage clothes in Los Angeles, New York, and Miami, making substantial money in the process. His interest in graffiti was spurred by a visit to France in 1999, where he learned that his cousin was the infamous street artist Space Invader. Having developed a knack for filming, Mr. Brainwash started to record the nightly escapades of Invader and other street artists, such as Shepard Fairey and the mysterious Zevs. At that time, there were no plans to release the videos documenting the graffiti artists at work.
