Los Angeles has long served as a muse for Invader, having installed 214 mosaics across the City of Angels thus far. Following his most comprehensive exhibition and book to date, the elusive French street artist is back in SoCal for a new solo show at Over the Influence in DTLA.
Entitled Camouflages & Devils Tower, Invader’s latest body of work is inspired by his love for film. “Just like the protagonists of Steven Spielberg’s film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, I was attracted and fascinated by Devils Tower, the mountain where the mothership from space lands,” said the artist in a statement. “I, as well, obsessively represented it from different angles, in different lights and in different formats using my Rubikcubist technique.”
The show is comprised of a new body of work revolving around his Rubik’s Cube works, as well as camouflage-related compositions, much like mosaic works he has installed in dozens of cites around the world. Camouflages & Devils Tower will be on view in LA until November 19.
Elsewhere, late artist’s Star Wars X-Wing model fetches over $3m USD at auction.
