As we previously reported, the mysterious artist -- whose documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop" is up for Best Documentary -- had been tagging up various spots in L.A. over the past few weeks.

for everyone who said @clever in a negative way.

Lewis said on a typical day, the restaurant brings in between $1,500 to $2,500 in business. After the artwork appeared, Lewis said business has more than doubled.

So who wants a rat on their building? Im guessing everyone does....
