Critical Review

Rubik Abbey Road is part of Invader’s Rubikcubism collection which features various prints all inspired by the combination puzzle created by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik in 1974. Invader defines Rubikcubism as a ‘fine art school developed in Paris in the early 21st century and characterised by the use of Rubik’s Cubes as a medium.’ The movement resonates with Pointillism and the paintings of Georges Seurat in which the artist produced detailed landscapes out of hundreds of tiny spots.

The Rubik’s Cube is a 3x3 cube which has six different coloured faces. Invader skilfully manipulates the colourful cubes to produce intricate designs ranging from album covers like this print to portraits of iconic film characters like Jack Torrance from Stanley Kubrick’s horror film, The Shining. As well as producing portraits of popular figures and album covers, Invader has also made simpler prints which feature grids of cubes arranged meticulously next to one another.
