GALERIE FRANK FLUEGEL has been representing the artist Mr. Brainwash in the German-speaking countries since 2012. In the branch in Kitzbühel, new works, all unique pieces on paper, will be shown from September 2019 to February 2020. After the auction record in London for a Banksy painting at Sothebys in London, Street Art is increasingly coming into focus. Born in 1966 as Thierry Guetta in Garges-lès-Gonesse near Paris, he has lived in Los Angeles since the age of 15. His first exhibition "Life is Beautiful" took place in Los Angeles in 2008 and quickly became a crowd puller with more than 50,000 visitors. In 2009 Madonna commissioned Mr. Brainwash to design the album cover of "Celebration". In 2010, the breakthrough came: Mr. Brainwash became famous through the award-winning and Oscar-nominated documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop", in which he accompanied his friend and street art legend Banksy at work. This also brought him into the street art scene and he began to create art. From that moment on Mr. Brainwash was a phenomenon, a superstar, who conquered the art world in record time. In February 2010 the second exhibition "Life Is Beautiful: Icons" opened in New York on 1,400 m2 and was sold out after a few days. Numerous exhibitions followed in England, Germany, France and most recently in Seoul. A longer interview has just been published in the Paris Match. With stencils stencil graffiti as well as silkscreens and motifs of pop culture analogous to Warhol, the artist has brought Urban Art from the street into the living room and merged both art movements. The surprising works mix bright colors in any combination with sometimes controversial content. The whole thing is executed in mixed media with spray paint, painting and collage technique and enriched with ironic allusions, behind which a political-social message is often hidden. GALERIE FRANK FLUEGEL with locations in Nuremberg and Kitzbühel is focused on high-quality originals of Pop Art, Street Art and Contemporary Art by Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Keith Haring, Mr. Brainwash, BAMBI, XOOOOX, Roy Lichtenstein, Julian Opie, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Sean Scully, Robert Longo, Alec Monopoly, Tracey Emin, Peter Doig, Alex Katz or Mel Ramos. Exhibitions take place in regular rotation in our centrally located shops. International trade fair participations round off the program. Many of the works on offer can be bought immediately and taken away with you, as they are in stock. Please note that due to the high demand, some artists' prices are expected to rise, and that the price of works may increase and old prices may lose their validity.
