"I like the concept of decontextualizing art to bring it to the streets, to surprise everyday people, while constantly creating new pieces. This project, I hope, will leave a print not only on the streets but also on the minds."
A statement that captures the essence of Space Invasions, Invader's ongoing project which needs no introduction. Everyone is familiar with the mosaics the artist creates and installs in urban environments around the globe. Throughout his career Invader has made a great impact on the street-art and art-world and had some pretty big moments. With a retrospective of his work opening in Los Angeles this November and with new works by the elusive artist now available at Hang-Up, we rounded-up some interesting facts and monumental moments in his career as a self-titled UFA - Unidentified Free Artist...
The internationally renowned street-artist has kept extremely busy since he stared his invasions in 1998. He has now invaded more than 35 countries around the globe with his characteristic video-game inspired mosaics which "represent... a symbol of the beginning of the digital world in which we are living now."
Some of our Invasion maps
Aladin Sane (Silver) pays tribute to a cultural icon, David Bowie
And the sought-after VIP edition of Space One.
As you can see this is a silver edition of the print the artist chose to send to space with gold details. A very limited edition, which rarely appears
on the market.
And some works from his Rubik Kubism series, both depicting iconic characters from The Shinning and A Clockwork Orange.
Invader is an artist that has become famous around the world and continuously challenges concepts around art. For his full catalogue click here and as always don't hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions on our invader works. Thanks for reading this week's blog.
As the artist himself has declared the "game is not over!"
