Internationally-renowned French street artist Invader will soon launch a solo exhibition at Over The Influence Gallery in Los Angeles, California. The forthcoming presentation will publicly display the anonymous artist’s canvas works for the first time. It also marks 20 years since he’s had a show in a museum or gallery as per the Los Angeles Times.

The retrospective aptly entitled “Into the White Cube” will spotlight the artist’s signature 8-bit tile mosaics of video game characters and other notable characters in pop culture. In regards to bringing his street artworks inside a contemporary setting, he expressed to the newspaper: “It’s not easy to be good in both [places]. But it’s not a paradox,” he says. “I’m an invader, I’m a street artist; but I’m also an artist.”

As of now, Invader has installed over 3,500 public works across the globe. He recently installed a total of 29 new mosaic pieces in Los Angeles. “Into The White Cube” is set to run from November 18 until December 23. Head over to Over The Influence’s website to learn more.
