Mr. Brainwash booth blockbuster attraction at Art Miami
Contessa Gallery will be participating in the 28th annual Art Miami Fair, December 5- December 10. Contessa Gallery will hosts two booths, one entirely dedicated to Mr. Brainwash’s electrifying works. The brilliant artist will design the booth, and it is sure to be a blockbuster attraction at Art Miami. Mr. Brainwash began his artistic career over 17 years ago documenting the underground world of street artists. His artistic evolution is chronicled in the Academy Award nominated documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop, directed by Banksy. Known for his stylistic combination of pop and street art, Brainwash creates his works by fiercely fusing together historical pop imagery with contemporary cultural iconography.
Contessa Gallery sets up roots on Palm Beach’s Worth Avenue
Steve Hartman, current President of FADA (Fine Art Dealers Association) and owner of internationally renowned Contessa Gallery, experienced first-hand the depth of the local Palm Beach area arts and cultural scene when he experimented with a West Palm Beach satellite gallery last year. This year a unique opportunity fell into his lap: A high-prized locale on Worth Avenue belonging to well-known art collector and Andy Warhol muse, Jane Holzer (AKA Baby Jane) unexpectedly became available. Contessa Gallery is up and running at 247 Worth Avenue (former Calypso space).
Contessa Gallery’s Current Featured Exhibit
Currently on display is a specially curated collection of works by leading contemporary artists, including a very extensive selection by pop and street art sensation, Mr. Brainwash. Contessa Gallery is excited to showcase the artist’s continual revolutionary experimentation with new techniques, media, materials and subject matter. The Palm Beach gallery also features major artwork by Chuck Close, Hanneke Beaumont, David Drebin,Hijack, Gilles Cenazandotti, Cayla Birk., Jasper Johns, Louise Nevelson, Daniele Sigalot (Blue and Joy), Tom Wesselmann and most recently, Brendan Murphy.
“The response we’ve seen to our presence in the South Florida art scene is off the charts. We’ve experienced a phenomenal welcome from Collectors. We think our highly curated collection of impressive artists will continue to attract important patrons.” explains Steve Hartman.
