The internationally-renowned French artist known by the moniker Invader will present his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles since 2005 in Into the white cube, an overview of the artist’s achievements over the past two decades. The exhibition will see his iconic mosaics featured alongside never-before-seen series and media. Since 1998, Invader has consistently challenged conventions and gained notoriety for his use of guerilla tactics to place pixelated characters in visible yet hard to reach spaces.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential contemporary urban artists, Invader’s mosaics create a dialogue between the city streets and a city’s inhabitants. Into the white cube is a comprehensive look back at Invader’s career as a public art pioneer. The show presents Invader’s acrylic on canvas works for the first time, large paintings that serve as a point of departure for him. With his paper works, Invader has pulled pages from auction house catalogues and reclaimed them by adding his signature, pixelated marks.
The opening reception for Into the white cube will take place on November 17 from 6 to 9pm.
