SPOTTED: Thierry Guetta (and hipsters) chilling outside the TIFF Bell Lightbox
A member of our secret underground spy network spotted street artist Mr. Brainwash (a.k.a. Thierry Guetta) on King Street West at lunchtime, hanging around the TIFF Bell Lightbox surrounded by a protective shell of hipsters. But Guetta, the subject of Banksy’s 2010 doc Exit Through The Gift Shop, isn’t just here for the shawarma. Mr. Brainwash been commissioned by TIFF to install a number of giant spray cans based on Hollywood icons along the red carpet at Roy Thomson Hall. You can also check out his exhibition at Gallery One for free—we’ve got all the details. There’s a great profile over at the Toronto Star as well.
