Street artist, notorious recluse, and Oscar-nominated documentarian Banksy may not be doing much in-person press as his Exit Through the Gift Shop gears up to take on the Academy Awards – but Mr Brainwash is sure doing his share!!

Just like Brainwash’s Show in Miami During Art Basel
 The mural is located on La Brea Ave.
