Invader roams the Serengeti with a new series of street art

Invading Africa


French artist, Invader, has chosen the wild planes of the African Serengeti as the backdrop for his latest series of mosaic tile-art, which features all the usual suspects of Africa's native wildlife

Invader is continuing his mission of "liberating Art from its usual alienators, that museums or institutions can be," by bringing his space-invader-inspired pixelated tile art to the vast open plains of the Serengeti. Invader has roamed the wild terrain of the Grumeti Game Reserve, creating site specific tiles of native wildlife and photographing them in-situ, against the genuine backdrop of rugged Africa

In a series of photos on his Instagram account, the artist can be seen at work, carving a stick figure into a concrete post, with a tribal mask face made from mosaics. Another enjoyable piece shows his tiled creation of a giraffe attempting to blend in with a real heard of giraffes in the background.
