On Monday 5th July, Artcurial's Urban Pop & Contemporary department will auction a major work by Invader: Rubik Dalai Lama, estimated at €300,000 to €400,000.
This assembly of 225 Rubik's Cubes on Plexiglas is part of the artist's Rubikcubism project, which began in the mid-2000s. This artistic series uses the famous coloured cubes as raw material to compose sculptures and paintings. Still working on the theme of the reproduction of the pixel, the artist extends what he had begun with the mosaic by creating, this time with the cubes, real paintings-objects in 3D. The constraints of the object - its size and its limited palette of 6 colours - lead him to produce works that only reveal themselves to a trained eye; almost abstract at first glance, they reveal themselves to the viewer when he stands back, blinks or looks at them through the screen of a digital camera !
