Mr. Brainwash to film exclusive mini series with MTV Australia
Hot off the heels of the announcement of Mr. Brainwash as a guest speaker at this year’s Semi Permanent Festival, the illusive street artist will touchdown in Sydney this week and make his way to the MTV offices to paint live at an exclusive party, ahead of filming a mini-series with MTV Australia.
Mr. Brainwash is the moniker of Los Angeles-based filmmaker and pop artist Thierry Guetta. Considered one of the most prolific and talked about artists of today, Mr. Brainwash achieved world-wide recognition with Banksy’s Oscar nominated film, ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop,’ which saw people worldwide speculate that Mr. Brainwash was actually an elaborate prank staged by Banksy.
In an exciting first for MTV, Mr. Brainwash will head to MTV HQ to live paint the office with a pop culture mash up of his iconic style of art mixed with key MTV moments over time.
This trip will also kick off filming of the mini-series MTV Australia is set to film with Mr. Brainwash over the next six months.
“I am very much looking forward to seeing Australia for the first time,” Mr. Brainwash said. “I already see huge potential to do big things, 2014 is the year, so stay tuned.”
