Banksy’s protege Mr Brainwash to launch art show in Birmingham - five photos of the art & artist
Mr Brainwash will also be releasing two exclusive, limited editions, Long Live the King and Power to the People
One of the world’s most collectable and provocative contemporary artists, Mr Brainwash AKA Thierry Guetta, will be at the launch of the Clarendon Fine Art show on April 26. This will be one of his most audacious shows yet, appropriating and reinterpreting the classics and offering his signature, subversive and playful takes on the modern world.
Mr Brainwash will also be releasing two exclusive, limited editions, Long Live the King and Power to the People. Long Live the King commemorates the coronation of King Charles III and is the partner piece to the Platinum Jubilee Queen of Hearts editions, which are already being collected for double their original price.
Clarendon Fine Art has been Mr Brainwash’s exclusive UK gallery representative since 2020. After starring in Banksy’s 2010 documentary, Mr Brainwash said: “Banksy captured me becoming an artist. In the end, I became his biggest work of art.”
Since then, Mr Brainwash has designed album covers for Madonna, Rick Ross and Michael Jackson, collaborated with everybody from Mercedes-Benz, the Beckhams, First Lady Michelle Obama - for her Let Girls Learn organisation - and Pope Francis for his Scholas youth foundation.
The show will go on tour to Clarendon Fine Art’s Birmingham on April 26 from 7-9pm at Clarendon Fine Art in Colmore Row, Birmingham.
