Hey guys, my name is Tan and this is my first post on Vandalog. It’s an honor to be invited to back-up RJ, as we’ve long been a fan of his street art coverage “across the pond”.
On Saturday, Invader and WK Interact drew a big crowd trying to catch a glimpse of the two hard-working artists from Europe’s Street Art scene. It was a treat to see both artists create large sized works to fill the walls of Jonathan Levine’s multi-room gallery. The works from WK conveyed much raw energy and emotion as hinted in our preview. The door installations were astonishing as each one was adorned with endless details that had to be seen to be enjoyed.
Invader was equally entertaining, as his works tested your vision. Each piece required multiple looks as we deciphered the pixelated colors of each image. It was fun to see his classic “street invader” pieces remixed with the Macintosh colorways. Both artists were on hand to sign their books for their adoring fans. WK’s energy mimicked his pieces as he bounced around the gallery greeting his fans. Invader was a little more playful with his pixel shoes with rubber soles that doubled as a stamp to do a quick tag for anyone who asked nicely. He as mysterious as his reputation, but we caught a got a few shots of Invader “unmasked!” Check out the pics after the jump.
