Outsider Art Goes Mainstream



I really loved this movie. It fascinated me on so many levels. The mysterious Bansky, the lovable Thierry, aka "Mr. Brainwash" or MBW come together with a magnifying glass on modern art and marketing. Is it all true or all a big scam?
And now that the film has been nominated for an Academy Award will the mystery man himself attend? Will we see the hooded street artist rubbing elbows on the Red Carpet? Was he asked to stay away? Is this all just more hype? Stay tuned.....

Bansky? Is that the guy who purportedly painted over the billboard out in CA?
