Exit through the gift shop.

I was recently lucky enough to see an advanced screening of Exit Through The Gift Shop, “the world’s first Street Art disaster movie” which has street artist Banksy to thank for its production. The film is thrilling, hysterical, and honest (“especially the bit where we all lie“). It tracks the furious passion of Thierry Guetta, a Frenchman who videotaped his entire life and accidentally stumbled into the role of videographer for notorious street artists like Banksy, Shepard Fairey, and Invader. Charged with developing his own art while Banksy created a film from all the footage, Guetta is now known as Mr. Brainwash.

I highly recommend seeing the film for several reasons, but the most important may be that you’ll get to see the amazing and previously obscured process of the world’s biggest street artists.

April 6’s daily design idea is find some way – any way – to document your work.
