FRENCH-born artists and filmaker, Thierry Guetta, now known as Mr. Brainwash, is set to open a new 4,000 s.f gallery in the retail space at the base TOWN'S West Village office.
Mr. Brainwashfirst came to the world's attention as the star of Banksy's 2010 Oscar-nominated documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop.
The film followed Guetta, the owner of a vintage clothes shop in Los Angeles, who was introduced to the nocturnal street art culture.
Evolving into an artist in his own right, Mr. Brainwash is known for altering recognized images and pushing the boundaries of creativity.
When he was introduced to the artists by TOWN broker Asaf Bar-Lev, president Andrew Hieberger helped arrange the gallery lease.
The firm is also planning a multimillion dollar Mr Brainwash installation throughout the firm's ten offices.
"Art brings a creative energy to the offices that transcends to the Representatives and in-turn to their clients," said Heiberger,.
TOWN has previously worked with artists such as illustrator James Gulliver Hancock, photojoumalist Brian Hamill, and creative guru David Lipman to adorn their offices.
