Red Hot Chili Peppers Brainwashing Stunts

(TMZ) L.A. has been blindsided by a wave of cryptic Red Hot Chili Peppers-themed street art -- and TMZ has learned the secret identity of the man behind the onslaught ... Banksy protégé Mr. Brainwash.

Brainwash -- who starred in the infamous Banksy documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop" -- wouldn't specify how much he's getting paid for the gig, but tells us, his job is far from done ... in fact, he and RHCP are teaming up on several more projects. more on this story
