Mr Brainwash, also known as Thierry Guetta, the French-born, LA-based street artist shot to fame in recent years from expressing his unique version of art which combines pop art with street art.
His works have become increasingly more valuable in the eyes of collectors which are thought to include the Kardashians, Madonna, Johnny Depp and Lindsay Lohan. Guetta also designed album covers for the likes of Madonna, Rick Ross, and KYGO. People may consider him to be known for his feature in the Banksy-directed documentary in 2010 "Exit Through The Gift Shop" which showcased Mr Brainwash's leap to fame.
Guetta stated "Banksy captured me becoming an artist. In the end, I became his biggest work of art". In 2010, Phillips auctioned Mr Brainwash's piece named "Einstein" which was estimated to sell between £15,000 - £20,000 but did in fact realise a staggering £75,650.
