Mr Brainwash Goes To The Oscars

image

 
Following his acceptance of the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary the night before, Mr Brainwash and his wife Deborah Guetta attended the 83rd Academy Awards for “Exit Through The Gift Shop”.

“Exit Through The Gift Shop” received an Oscar nomination late 2010(the film premiered for the first time at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2010), also winning the Grierson Trust British Documentary Award in November of the same year.

Although “Exit Through The Gift Shop” did not win an award for its category, its nomination only fueled the infamy surrounding Banksy and the curious fixation on Mr Brainwash.

The former CBS Columbia Square studios in Hollywood opened its doors for the first time on June 18th, 2008, the doors having been closed since 2007. Promising a show like no one has ever seen, Mr Brainwash appropriately chose the city’s first film studio (then called Nestor Film Company) as the location for his debut into the art world.

Mr Brainwash transformed this once-pristine news and radio network to a gallery space that held a variety of mediums, from sculptures to installations, paintings and prints, all in his grandiose style.

Though he fell off a ladder while preparing for “Life is Beautiful,” a broken leg wasn’t enough to stop Mr Brainwash from the biggest art opening in Los Angeles.

Crowds were lined up for hours and around the block, with eager art-seekers even rushing through the gates past security in order to take a peek at MBW’s work.
