After a first preview the other day, we can give you a full recap of the Mr. Brainwash ‘Artshow 2011’ exhibition, which opened to the public this weekend. Much talked about, much hated, French artist Mr. Brainwash aka Thierry Guetta, certainly managed to attract the masses with this massive event that he put together.

Next to a huge amount of large scale sculptures placed on the ground floor of the 80’000 square feet building, local artists were invited to present their works on the first floor of the building.

Mr. Brainwash’s work will certainly continue to split opinions – he presents pretty much every single cliche that one can think of in the show. The execution is certainly not bad and if it was not him and not all so overwhelming, critics might have turned out differently. He might be the perfect mainstream street artist and is working that to his advantage – we cannot blame him for that. The show must go on!

A full picture recap of the Artshow 2011 follows after the jump.
