Alice Gallery in Brussels recently opened a big group show entitled Just Before Brazil. The idea was to showcase the artists they invited to the Asphalte festival in Charleroi and to share with the world their works before everyone’s attention gets focused on Brazil and football. But, after settling on the first lineup of artists, they’ve decided to add few more names and ended up with an impressive list of 52 artworks by 26 artists from various parts of the globe, various backgrounds, and various ways […]

After sharing some shots of the invasion of Hong Kong by tilemaster Invader last month, here are now some more documentation of his work in the streets for you to peruse. The French legend has now glued a total of 48 new pieces of his signature 8-bit imagery up in multiple locations, some in the most visible and busy spots in the Chinese metropolis. Take a look at more photos below culled from his Instagram. Discuss Invader here.
After hitting the slopes earlier this month in the Swiss Alps so spread his signature imagery to the great outdoors, Invader has traveled to one of the densely populated places in the world. Hitting the streets of Hong Kong has its own set of problems, as fellow French artist Zevs discovered in 2009. It looks like Invader had a more successful run including debuting some new work including site-appropriate references to Kung Fu Master and Hong Kong Phooey. Discuss Invader here.
The winter months usually see a slowdown in street art activity as the cold forms a natural impediment to being outdoors in certain regions of the world. There are exceptions though as seen by Invader’s recent work in the small village of Anzère in the heart of the Swiss Alps. The French legend gifted the area with some of his classic characters and namesakes as well as taking the opportunity to take cues as he commonly does from video games (in this case the old school […]
