Instant Inspiration # Mr. Brainwash

After his introduction to the world in the Banksy directed doco, Exit through the Giftshop, Thierry Guette aka Mr.Brainwash became an infamous name in the world of art.

In a celebration of taking the piss of all things British, Brainwash created a eclectic fusion of street art and pop culture in his London show. Viewed at the Old Sorting Office, a warehouse like space, the show had edge and allowed you to sneak into the world of street art. Highlights were the oversized installations, including a life size king kong, a british taxi cab in a toy car box and the subtle references to Banksy.

With free posters and postcards, everyone was a winner.
