Basel Week Miami ’12: Invader @ Jonathan LeVine / PULSE

As we wandered the halls of the PULSE art fair (highlights here) during Basel Week Miami, we came upon the booth of Jonathan LeVine solely featuring the work of Invader. After seeing his work up and about town, we now had a chance to see some of the French artist’s tiled creations up close. Also present was the balloon contraption that allowed him to get his signature character up in space earlier this year (covered). While in Florida, the street artist also hosted a screening for […]

Streets: World Roundup (Sept 10 – Sept 16)

Other murals to admire on earth this week include work from Inti – […]

Streets: Invader (Belgium)

We haven’t heard much from Monsieur Invader since he served up space waffles at a showing in London (covered) back in December.

As usual, he put a little local flavor into this invasion with references to the famous peeing statue that is a symbol for the city as well as some use of the Belgium colors. More looks after the jump…
