If you missed seeing one of the three sculptures by internationally acclaimed street artist Mr. Brainwash during the BOLD festivities in August, you’re still in luck. 

Mr. Brainwash is the moniker used by Thierry Guetta, the French-born, Los Angeles-based artist who rose to prominence as a protégé of Banksy after appearing in his film “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” At the time, Guetta was a security-guard turned proprietor of a used clothing store and an amateur videographer. He was introduced to Banksy by his cousin, Invader, another filmmaker and street artist who also hit the scene a few decades ago.
