It's been a year since French artist Invader touched down in Los Angeles. Invader, of course, is the anonymous French artist whose cute-yet-ominous invader mosaics have been proliferating around Los Angeles since 1999. The occasion last April was a show at hyper-cool Subliminal Projects gallery, during which time he successfully tagged the last few letters of the Hollywood Sign with his artwork.

Next Saturday, June 11, he returns to this planet for a show at sixspace. LAist can't wait for this one. Having so successfully taken one Eighties icon and turned it into a truly global exercise in art and phenomenology (Shepard Fairey style), Invader has now expanded his art into the third dimension. And he's done it by incorporating into his Space Invader aesthetic that of another Eighties gaming icon--the Rubik's Cube.

The show runs through July 8 July 9 at sixspace. The artist will be there in person on Saturday, June 11 from 7:00 to 10:00 PM. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
