Mr Brainwash gets a warning.

In the dead of the sweltering New York City night, a warning shot was fired across the poop deck known as Mr Brainwash, aka Thierry Guetta.  Street art conglomerate, TrustoCorp, embarked on a large anti-MBW campaign last night, defacing several prominent Brainwash pieces in NYC’s Meatpacking district.  The message?  “Locals Only, No Fakes, No Phonies”.  A retaliation to Guetta’s street marketing for his recent New York show, Trusto seems to have given a warning to the highly successful street artist and amateur documentary film maker, encouraging him to take his street art and pop messages back to his home of Hollywood.  Whether or not TrustoCorp will activate their nationwide network of street artist cells to wage a full scale war against MBW (a la Banksy vs. Robbo), or if this is just a declaration of territory currently remains unclear.
