Clarendon Fine Art hosted an artist reception for Banksy’s protégé, Mr. Brainwash, to celebrate the opening of his new exhibition “All You Need is Art” and honor their U.S. flagship’s 1st anniversary on Thursday night in Westport Connecticut. As part of its U.S. launch, Clarendon partnered with The Westport Museum for History & Culture, an essential American institution dedicated to the mission of Making History Whole.

Mr. Brainwash, AKA Thierry Guetta, kicked off the evening with his signature selfies alongside the over 300 VIP guests who attended. The evening unfolded seamlessly, marked by an enthusiastic surge in sales accompanied by Mr. Brainwash personally autographing heartfelt notes on each sold piece. 

Those in attendance that evening included Clarendon Fine Art Chief Executive Officer, Helen Swaby; Clarendon Fine Art Manager, Eve Gianni; and Chief Commercial Officer, Rebecca Ball as well as Jennifer Tooker, First Selectwoman; Kitt Shapiro, Eartha Kitt’s Daughter; Lisa Wexler; Lucia Gulbransen, Robin Moyer Chung and Jennifer Bernicker.

The “All You Need is Art” exhibit, spanning the gallery’s two floors, showcased high-value, impactful, large-scale sculptures, ‘vandalized’ canvases’, painted balloon sculptures, vibrant works on wooden panels and sections of subway trains, as well as origami sculptures that serve as miniature replicas of the artist’s famed Rodeo Drive installation.

Mr. Brainwash also unveiled his exclusive limited-edition silkscreens, marrying four of the most well-known artworks in history: Van Gogh’s Sunflowers of 1888 and Irises of 1890 and Warhol’s Hibiscus inspired Flowers of 1964 and Campbell’s Soup tin from the 1962 series.

The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will be on view through February 25, 2024.

Mr. Brainwash collectors have included the Obamas, Madonna, and David and Victoria Beckham. He rose to fame in 2008 when he mounted his debut show in Los Angeles, ‘Life is Beautiful.” The critically acclaimed exhibit welcomed over 50,000 visitors with pieces selling for six figures. In 2010, Mr. Brainwash appeared in Exit Through the Gift Shop, an Academy-nominated documentary produced by Banksy that documented his transition from filmmaker to street artist. In 2022, he opened the Mr. Brainwash Art Museum in Beverly Hills showcasing over a decade of artwork from solo shows around the globe. He has amassed auction sales of over $2.5 million over the last decade and his work can be seen in TV shows like Shameless and Keeping up with The Kardashians, album covers for The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael Jackson and Rick Ross, and design collaborations with pop culture legends like Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee as well as brands including Hublot, Mercedes-Benz, and The Hard Rock Hotel.

 Clarendon Fine Art, distinguished by its extensive portfolio of over 80 galleries through the UK, has proudly served as the exclusive gallery representative for Mr. Brainwash since 2020.

The Clarendon Fine Art US Flagship gallery in Westport is a 3,200-square-foot building at 22 Main Street. The gallery showcases hand-picked international portfolios from world-famous names alongside the best-emerging talents. Word-of-mouth, cultivated relationships, and passion for the art and artists have been the impetus for Clarendon’s growth, making a thriving town the right place to begin this US journey rather than a large city.

 The wide range of artworks on exhibit includes originals, collector’s editions, and sculptures across genres including landscape, wildlife, still life, figurative, and abstract. In addition, 20th-Century investment pieces from artists such as Picasso, Miro, Warhol, and Dali are displayed alongside cutting-edge pop and street artists such as Mr. Brainwash, Koons, and Banksy. At the same time contemporary artists including Christian Hook, Fabian Perez, Sherree Valentine-Daines, and the satirical British duo Connor Brothers are complemented by abstract, and landscape works from artists such as Danielle O’Connor Akiyama and Jeffrey Pratt.
