SPACE INVADER: Derives, Brussels
By tomorrow ( Friday, 20th of April,12 ), the famous rubik’s cube, Space Invader will exhibit their pieces of work in Brussels, Belgium at Alice Gallery. The exhibition will be titled as ” Derives ”
Some might wonder why does Space Invader so important?!? well, Space Invader is a project that started back to the year1996, which received a great impact from various video game; pac man and Mario game from Nintendo, and even continue their work until this present date.
Their work give a sense of low pixel imagery with the colorful that combine into one piece of mosaic. This project have been seen in many countries from under-develop country like Bangladesh to United Kingdom.
Also, many of the street-wears brands disposing the style of mosaic into their art-work before screening into many objects like T-shirt/ trucker hat or even a brooch!
Oh and the location is something not to be missed about, the location of Space Invader is like somewhere you cannot even imagine. like in the corner of the street, on the pedestrian, at the corner of the building or on top of the street sign.
I am a very big fan of Space Invader, I always keen on searching where it is whenever I travel abroad. There is one place i could not even imagine that this artist will take a move in, well, it is really beyond my imagination. The city I mentioned is actually Dhaka, Bangladesh. This city is like a complete another world that I ever reside. well, I am not saying that it is bad but it is just another world to me.
Dhaka is country where everything gone beyond expectation. The street are populated with the cars, people and dust. You might have to travel 6 hours just to go the city 60 kms away. Everywhere has an ads signs that it is very difficult to find this piece of work. It takes me like 3 Dhaka trips ( lets say 3 weeks in total ) to find this invader!
Anyway, here are some picture of the Space Invader:
