Street Art // Monday, October 28, 2013
With the NYC premier of his short film opening tomorrow night at the Sunshine Cinema, Invader has declared (like many others right now) the Rotten Apple to be his current playground for installing mosaic tile works. Several new pieces have appeared high above the streets around Manhattan with various characters, our favorite starring Princess White eating an apple over a restaurant sign. A tiling of Donkey Kong has also popped up as well as Power Flower from Mario Bros. Like Banksy, Invader has started an Instagram so you can follow his "invasions" and play the street art treasure hunt game.

We were just wondering where Escif has been and why we had not seen any new work from him popping up.
