Featured at contemporary art gallery Over The Influence in Los Angeles, the exhibition spotlights the artist’s achievements from the past two decades, including his iconic 8-bit mosaics video game characters and pop culture figures, in addition to brand new series and media.
In a cover story for the Los Angeles Times, the artist spoke about sharing his street artworks inside an art gallery. "It’s not easy to be good in both [places]. But it’s not a paradox," Invader says. "I’m an invader, I’m a street artist, but I’m also an artist."
Additionally, the Into the White Cube exhibition serves as Invader's first solo show in Los Angeles since 2015. Currently, Invader has put up more than 3,500 public works, spanning 77 cities on five continents, and this time, he installed 29 new pieces in Los Angeles. Almost half of the 200 pieces that the artist installed in LA over the years are still up.
The exhibition will open on Saturday, November 17 and remain on view until December 23. For more information, head on over to Over The Influence’s website.
