I interviewed Mr. Brainwash, of “Exit Through the Gift Shop” fame, in the summer of 2011 for a feature we were doing in The Infamous magazine. As anybody who has seen the documentary might expect, Mr. Brainwash is, um, eccentric, and it was a long and drawn-out conversation, but I found him to be a nice guy, gracious and sincere – but definitely a little over the top.
I did my best with this interview, which was kind of tough, based on the subject matter. At one point during the interview I found myself talking to Mr. Brainwash about Grace Kelly, and explaining to him that Grace Kelly was from Philadelphia… just like The Infamous magazine. I’m not sure he understood or if anyone thinks the connection is relevant.
