Invader in action, beyond l’Art de la Rue!


We wrote recently about the street art show (“Au déla du Street Art”) currently at the Musée de la Poste in Paris, and joked that it spelled the end of street art. Well, as the above video shows, rumors of the artform’s demise are in fact un tout pétit premature.

Invader, French street artist, famous for his ubiquitous mosaics – and one of the artists featured in the above mentioned funeral … er, exhibition – straps a video camera to his backpack and leads us through the rues of Paris, at night. The video is from the film “In Bed with Invader” by Raphael Haddad, with music by Toby Screamer.

Laugh now, but you know that Grafitti and Street Art are no longer THAT relevant when they grace Paris art gallery walls… voilà “Au Delà du Street Art”

“Exit Through the Gift Shop” Banksy’s film about street art, the graffiti artist’s own work… and ultimately the state of the Art Market

“The bad artists imitate, the great artists steal – Picasso…” er, Banksy
