Contessa Gallery: Showcasing a special presentation of Mr. Brainwash works at ArtMiami 2014 

Monday, December 1, 2014, Cleveland, OH Contessa Gallery is thrilled to be participating in Art Miami, which is the leading international contemporary and modern art fair. This is a notable year for Art Miami as they celebrate their 25th anniversary. Art Miami works with the most respected and influential galleries to feature important artists and artworks from the 20th and 21st centuries. Contessa Gallery’s booth will be exhibiting new works by notable Contemporary artists Mr. Brainwash, David Datuna, and David Drebin, as well as iconic works by modern masters such as Jasper Johns, Helen Frankenthaler, and Chuck Close.

In an unprecedented move, Contessa Gallery will be exhibiting in two booths at Art Miami, with one booth dedicated exclusively to a special presentation of the work of Mr. Brainwash. Thierry Guetta, internationally known as Mr. Brainwash, followed and documented street artists on film beginning in 1999, ultimately filming the most famous street artist: Banksy. At the encouragement of Banksy, Guetta began creating his own street art and had his first solo show as Mr. Brainwash in 2008. Mr. Brainwash’s artistic evolution is documented in the Banksy-directed and Oscar-nominated film, Exit Through the Gift Shop. Known for his Pop Art feel and street-art style, Guetta will be transforming the booth to reflect his own studio space. The entire booth will be complete with painted walls and materials used to create his dynamic work, pulling viewers into the world of Mr. Brainwash and immersing them amongst his new works made specifically for Art Miami.
