Thierry Guetta, AKA Mr. Brainwash
This image was based upon Antoine Watteau's depiction of Pierrot, from Commedia dell'arte. Commedia dell'arte (comedy of art) is a form of theatre that began in Italy in the year 1560. It is characterized by improvised performances based on sketches or scenarios. The Pierrot is now Thierry Guetta, AKA Mr. Brainwash, the central character of the Banksy movie "Exit Through the Gift Shop". The British street artist is shown wearing his monkey mask on the lower right, while Shepard Fairey is sitting on the other side of Guetta. The two other characters' faces were censored, because they (presumably) disapproved of the painting. The overall composition holds graphics from Space Invaders; visual elements used by the French street artist of the same name, also present in the Banksy movie.
