Hardly any other street art artist has experienced such a rapid rise as the French Thierry Guetta aka Mr. Brainwash, born in Garges-lès-Gonesse in 1966. His path to becoming the most successful artist of recent years is closely linked to the name Banksy and his Oscar-winning film Exit Through the Gift Shop: In this documentary Banksy encourages the then still unknown Guetta to become active as an artist himself under the pseudonym Mr. Brainwash. The rumor persists that Mr. Brainwash is a purely fictional person invented by Banksy and that his works are actually created by Banksy.
Girl with Balloon (also known as Balloon Girl or Girl and Balloon) is a series of graffiti works on public walls in London, started in 2002 by graffiti artist Banksy. It shows a young girl pointing with outstretched hand at a red heart-shaped balloon carried away by the wind. The first work was on Waterloo Bridge, and there were other murals in the London area, none of which have survived.
