Last month, the street artist dubbed Invader, took his talents to Paris. After sneaking onto the top of the Eiffel Tower, he installed one of his famous mosaics before getting out of town. Now the notorious artist is back, this time taking his talents to the island of Djerba in Tunisia. The artist created 58 new pieces, with a handful of Star Wars characters to celebrate the premiere of the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker movie. Some of these eye-catching figures were installed in the locations featured in the cult film franchise.
We see a pixelated Obi-Wan Kenobi installed onto the Jedi’s actual house in the 1977 film. There is also a Stormtrooper piece in the location where Luke and Obi-wan first met Han Solo and Chewbacca. The mosaic tributes are a unique and fitting tribute to the film, as well as the area where they are placed. The artist spoke about his works recently. He stated: “The island of Djerba in Tunisia is well known for its sandy beaches, white dome-shaped roofing houses, date palm trees, white sand beaches but also locations of the first Star Wars movie.” He went on to add, “This is also the 79th territory hit by the Invasion with a total score of 58 mosaics installed throughout the island.”
Check out Invader’s ‘Star Wars’ Mosaics works in the images below and head over to his website for more information and to view more of his work. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the art department coming very soon.
