Fresh off his show at Jonathan LeVine with WK Interact in June, Invader hits the gallery circuit again, this time at Lazarides – Rathbone Place. “Low Fidelity” opens this Friday, August 14th and will include sculptures, mosaics, drawings, a new series of Rubik classic album covers (his tribute to Michael Jackson seen above). If you haven’t had a chance to see his “rubikcubism” technique yet, check this video. See if you can guess some more of the album covers after the jump…

Openings: Invader & WK Interact @ Jonathan Levine

On Saturday, Invader and WK Interact drew a big crowd trying to catch a glimpse of the two hard-working artists from Europe’s Street Art scene. It was a treat to see both artists create large sized works to fill the walls of Jonathan Levine’s multi-room gallery. The works from WK conveyed much raw energy and emotion as hinted in our preview. The door installations were astonishing as each one was adorned with endless details that had to be seen to be enjoyed.  Invader was equally entertaining, […]

Preview: Invader – “Top 10” @ Jonathan Levine

We got a few more sneak peek images from the upcoming Invader “Top 10” show opening this Saturday at Jonathan Levine.

Video/Creative Process: Invader @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Invader will be having a solo show at Jonathan Levine Gallery at the end of June. Here’s a little video preview of his trademark “Rubickubism” process and a piece that will be at the show. The geometric complexity and attention to detail Invader utilizes to create his images is really fun to observe in this clip. Also, JLG has just relaunched their website. Not only does the new site showcase their current/future shows and feature their blog, but it also sports a new “backroom” section with selected works from a […]

Outsiders LA & 2009 lineup @ Lazarides

Who says the art market is having a down year? Not Lazarides… We’ve got a sneak peek of the UK urban juggernaut’s 2009 lineup and it seems to be bringing the gusto.

For the US market, Laz saved a little surprise as well. The “Outsiders” group show […]
