At Galerie Le Feuvre in Paris, works by Invader are presented in a new show called “Masterpieces.” Invader is the enigmatic street artist known for crafting square ceramic tiles into images that resemble digital, pixelated renderings throughout the past few decades. The gallery says that the show was triggered by “discovery of works dated from 1997.” The artist was featured way back in Hi-Fructose Magazine Vol. 2.
The gallery has its own history with the artist, having represented his work between 2010 and 2015 in France. “The earthling Invader began his invasion in 1998,” they say. “The Louvre, the Hollywood hill, the walls of Paris, Montpellier (with fellow artist Zevs), and in random order, Aix-enProvence, Frankfurt, London, Miami, Hong Kong, Rome, New York, Los Angeles and Vienna, the underwater depths of the Bay of Cancun and outer space with the International Space Station. Twenty years on, he has affixed more than 3,000 mosaics worldwide in nearly 70 cities.”
In addition to the new works unearthed, the gallery chose other pieces created between 2013 and 2014. Pieces like “Say Hello to My Little Friend” show that the artist’s love of pop culture goes past 1980s video games, rendering Al Pacino’s Scarface using Rubik’s Cube blocks.
