MBW vs. Banksy


So last night I went ahead and saw "Exit through the Gift Shop" for the first time and I gotta say, one of the best documentaries (or mockumentary) I've seen in quite awhile.  The story pretty much covers an aspiring filmmaker/artists' journey to one of the biggest and most successful art shows in LA.  Thierry Guetta (MBW or Mr. Brainwash) the Frenchman famous for capturing footage of the works of some of the worlds most well known street artists embarks on a journey to film Banksy, arguably the world's most controversial street artist.

Now I won't tell you the rest of the movie but I really do suggest seeing it for yourself.  It's a very interesting movie to say the least.  Witness the personalities and hardships street artists go through to get their work out, not only a touching journey but also a humorous one as the characters are pretty funny.  So go see "Exit through the Gift Shop"

Also, what do you think? who's art do you prefer? MBW's or Banksy's? or any of the other characters'?


  1. I dig both their styles because they are rather similar ...great movie

  2. lol, I watched that movie. I don't care about MBW at all, he has no style, and there's no meaning behind his work. Just throws random shit together. :p
