Our man in Los Angeles, Josh, snapped pictures of this massive work by Mr. Brainwash (Thierry Guetta) on Santa Monica Boulevard.  The usual brainwash visuals and messaging are deployed here: Warholian homagery a la Campbell’s soup-can, 1970s-’80s “Memorex Man” TV commercial image and “Life is beautiful.” Mr. Brainwash, as many readers of this blog know, was the subject of Banky’s award-winning documentary film “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” Many thanks for the pix, Josh!
