Teaser: Invader – “Attack of the Space Waffles” @ The Outsiders

On December 2nd, The Outsiders Gallery on Greek Street in London will be hosting Attack of the Space Waffles, the newest solo from the infamous Invader. Just like his show in Paris (covered) back in June celebrating his 1000 piece of street work, there will be an appearance of Space Invader shaped waffles, which is also hinted in the title of the exhibition. Also purported to make a showing at the opening will be a “brand new mosaic Alias’, an Invaded Disco Ball, a 20 […]

Videos: Invader x VNA – “Paris 2011”

You may remember the special Invader screenprinted edition of the VNA magazine that we gave away here on AM a while back. Apparently, the Very Nearly Almost crew also produced a video while visiting with street artist in Paris where he gives them a little tour of what he has been working on as well as talks on camera on various things. Enjoy. Discuss Invader here.

Contests: VNA 16 / Invader Cover Giveaway

Our friends over at Very Nearly Almost have graciously decided to run a giveaway on the newest issue of their magazine here on AM. Not only does issue #16 feature a good slate of artists like Kid Zoom, Will Barras, TrustoCorp, but this is the special edition with a 3 color screenprint from Invader on the cover signed by the French street artist and in a numbered edition of 150 (this one is an AP). The pack also contains a sticker sheet and screenprinted envelope. […]

Streets: Invader (São Paulo) Part II

Last month we brought you coverage of Invader getting up down in São Paulo. It appears either the Parisian artist fell in love with the Brazilian street art mecca and stuck around for the past few week. Or he was so pleased with his previous invasion that he quickly returned for another attack. Whatever it may be, the master of the mosaic has bestowed another round of his 8-bit minions scattered throughout the South American country once again in some pretty impressive and brazen locations. […]

Openings: “De Dentro e De Fora” @ São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP)

A couple nights ago, the São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP) played host to the opening of De Dentro e De Fora or Inside Out Outside In, seemingly a repeated title for many recent street art exhibitions and videos in some variation or another. Although the name of the exhibition lacked originality, what was important (the art) more than made up for it. Curated by Mariana Martins, Baixo Ribeiro, and Eduardo Saretta, the show featured new works by familiar names to AM readers like Invader […]

Streets: Invader (São Paulo)

After celebrating his 1000th piece placed in the streets with a huge show in Paris, it looks like Invader is continuing onward towards 2000.  Take a look at these new pieces in the Brazilian street art mecca of São Paulo. Of interest are the daring placements, the use of tiles with local flavor, locations next to local talent, and even a rare throw-up from the French street tile master. Perhaps he is in town for a group show opening this weekend at São Paulo Museum […]

Openings: Invader – “1000” @ Galerie Le Feuvre (Paris)

Yesterday night in Paris, resident street tilemaster Invader put on the mother of all shows to celebrate getting up for the 1000th time at La Générale, organized by Gallerie Le Feuvre. Almost as impressive as the amount of work the French artist created is that fact that it seems he meticulously documented everything as evidenced by a large wall covered by what looks to be a photo of every single piece (perhaps not surprising as being obsessive-compulsive may run in his blood seeing his cousin […]

Streets / Teaser: Invader – “1000” @ Galerie Le Feuvre (Paris)

MOCA’s indoor space (covered), along with the surrounding outdoor landscape (covered), was infiltrated by Invader’s mosaic minions for Art in the Streets. Apparently, his street invasion, while technically unsanctioned, was so egregious that he was bestowed the unwelcome honor as the first artist to be arrested – though later released and allowed to leave the country – by Los Angeles Police. The LAPD have made their opposition and misplaced animosity regarding the museum exhibit crystal clear, as if on some tireless terrorist hunt wasting resources […]
