The movie "Exit through the Gift Shop," the 2010 feature-length documentary by the elusive U.K. street artist Banksy, follows the artistic perambulations of France-born L.A. based artist Thierry Guetta (aka Mr. Brainwash).For those eager to discover the original, psychedelic art of Mr. Brainwash, Geneva-based gallery Bel-Air Fine Art has curated an outstanding exhibition at Saifi's Gallery 169, which is up until the end of the week.Bearing the same name as Mr. Brainwash's 2008 exhibition, the Beirut one gathers a series of 11 original works portraying such pop culture celebrities as Albert Einstein, Charlie Chaplin, Jimi Hendrix and Kate Moss, among other well-known figures. The exhibition places the works of Mr. Brainwash alongside the kinetic art of Patrick Rubinstein.It is for this reason that the Bel-Air Fine Art gallery decided to travel around the world and exhibit prestigious works as the ones of Mr. Brainwash and Rubinstein.
