I recently watched a documentary film about street art and the gradual growth and popularity of it. It started by a man called Thierry Guetta AKA (Mr brainwash) and he was a man who discovered a camera and film his whole life everything he did he filmed his passion was making a film documenting his life due to losing out when he was younger. Anyway the sum of the story is the joy he had and the thrill of going out and filming street artists doing there thing, after he started going round loads of street artists he always wanted to get to the leading street artist Banksy and he followed him and helped him and and Banksy told him to go back to LA and start doing street art something that he always wanted to do. So then MR.brainwash went off and started doing art and he did a very big exhibition in LA with loads of different kind of street art work in the end Mr.Brainwash was a complete success and has gone on to do work for Madonna.
In review to this it really inspires me as an artist and makes me change my entire view on how art is made and what art means to people its very striking, its sending out a message of you can do anything you like, go against the system don’t do what your supposed to do forget the rules forget the laws make art something that you enjoy and something that nobody can take away from you.
