Mr. Brainwash Surprise Art Show in The High Line NYC

I've been waiting for this show forever. The first time I knew Mr. Brainwash (aka Thierry Guetta) would have a show this summer was when me and my boy Yurie got off the High Line Park in 14th and 10th then I accidentally saw a big piece of painting inside this big open space from the window that is covered with what it seem to be the famous Star Wars trooper. I mean it had graffiti and spray paint all over it so I thought it must have something to do with Mr Brainwash. Not to mention prior to seeing this under construction space I've been seeing Mr Brainwash a few times in Mercer Hotel so I thought the two had a connection. 

 Fast forward a month or two later, I peeped Mr Brainwash's Instagram and there it was! He just had a soft opening last Sunday. Being a big Brainwash fan that I am, I cannot miss this opportunity and had to go see the show. It wasn't announced in public as far as I know and the photos of people that went on Sunday wasn't even aware that it was the first day. 

I was so hype to see his work in the flesh besides the ones I see in galleries (a poster signed by Mr Brainwash himself cost from $800+ up if you purchase them in galleries).  Check out my video below originally uploaded via SnapChat @ajlavilla as I went about my day to visit Mr Brainwash' surprise exhibit in High Line, Meatpacking District New York City. 

The photos I took below are my favorites and stood out the most among others :) enjoy!
