Invader Exhibit

From Hypebeast:

London’s Lazarides Gallery looks to open their latest exhibition on August 14th, 2009, featuring the artwork of internationally renown French artist Invader. The show looks to run through September 17th, 2009. Lazarides had this to say about “Low Fidelity”:

Showcased within the Rathbone gallery, Low Fidelity will feature all new works from the series “Rubikcubism”. Using the famous 80’s puzzle game’s cubes as pixels, the artist has recreated album covers by rock bands such as the Velvet Underground, The Cure, Roxy Music, David Bowie and Michael Jackson. In addition to these classic images as well as a selection of sculptures and original works on paper, Invader has taken the pixelated image one-step further crafting his very own ‘barcodes’. These abstract works are only discernable with the aid of a mobile phone digital camera, the image from which is then “decoded” into a text message.
