Critical Review

Available also in blue, this signed print was produced in conjunction with Invader’s largest solo exhibition, Into The White Cube, held at Over the Influence in Los Angeles. Therefore, the print is a testament to Invader’s growing visibility within the institutional artistic scenery, with Invader’s pixelated and digitalised visual language having taken over both the public space of the city and the enclosed space of art galleries.

This attests to the versatility of Invader’s practice, which, even if inscribed within a broader movement of Street Art, is easily translatable to the more private walls of a museum or a house, equally amusing and engaging for the beholder.

The mirror here evokes the luxury and opulence of the Halls of Mirrors in the French Palace of Versailles, built in the seventeenth century for Louis the XIV. No doubt that, through his fine art education at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, a young Invader had the chance to visit and be highly fascinated and influenced by the halls of the palace. In such a way, this print points to Invader’s rigorous artistic training, as well as his desire to engage with French cultural symbols, here referenced through the mirrors of Versailles.
