As a Photographer and assistant to a signed artist for the Opera Gallery, I'd happened to visit to see how Mr Brainwash was getting on preparing the gallery for his solo exhibition. Whilst I was there, some friends of mine from Saatchi&Saatchi were interviewing Thierry for TOPMAN Generations, so I thought I'd help out. Due to the main camera running out of juice, I'd left mine running towards the end of the interview, where Thierry said one of the most beautiful and poignant things. Contrary to popular belief about the somewhat controversial divide between him and Banksy (also an Opera Gallery artist), I felt his words are so true to many people out there, and definitely the backbone to a lot of my own work.
Filmed at the London Opera Gallery, Bond Street.
