who knew invader sold 5ft works for $65k. Wonder who's buying those?
or 7x5 inch pieces for $15k. wow.
I took a quick look through the preview list after it was sent, and have decided to scratch Invader off my list of art pieces I would like to own. Some of these appeal to me, but the prices are just silly IMO. I think I'll buy some hand made Italian glass tiles, pick my favorite image, and just make my own. If you are going to argue that it isn't that easy, I really do think that it is. It won't be signed, but so what? $19,000 for a signature that wouldn't show anyway ... the sad part is that I like Invader and what he does.
He is the one street artist whose work makes absolutely no sense to me away from the street. Also, I'm pretty open minded about materials and media but I struggle with mosaic tiles at any price let alone this level. Probably more to do with the fact that, away from street, that's all it is - mosaic tiles arranged nicely. I really wonder who buys it for that kind of money? Having said all that I totally love seeing his work out doors where it should be.
