Known to many as Banksy`s protégé, Thierry Guetta aka Mr Brainwash, returns to the Capital for a new London Pop Art show this Summer.
Mr Brainwash is one of the most exciting, charismatic artists around. Responsible for album artwork for Madonna and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Thierry Guetta has fast become a major player in the Pop art scene.
The London Pop art shows at the Opera Gallery will be very popular. For some perspective, the opening of Mr Brainwash`s LA show `Life is Beautiful` saw 7,000 people queued around the block to get in. Originally set to run for just four weeks, the show had to be extended to three months just to keep up with public demand!
Guetta`s rise to fame rocketed in 2010 following the debut of the controversial Banksy documentary `Exit Through the Giftshop` at the Sundance Film Festival.
In demand? You bet.
After the commissions from `Madge` and the Chilli`s, Future collaborations are tipped to be none other than Justin Bieber! He could have some real fun with that one…!
The London Pop art shows Begin with a soft-launch (in the presence of the artist) at Opera Gallery London, New Bond Street on the 12th July-10th August.
The first part of the show will see exclusive new pieces: canvases, stencils and for the first time ever, Mr Brainwash sculptures.
Part two of the exhibition will see the Opera Gallery show moving into one of the biggest warehouse pop-up art shows ever to hit London.
On 1st August Mr Brainwash will be taking over The Old Sorting Office, 21-31 New Oxford Street in a monumental exhibition spanning 3 floors and covering a space of over 1200ft. Mr Brainwash is expected to deliver his usual fusion of stencil, sculpture and installation in works on a massive scale.
