Mythical works of Street Art - Street Art Passage de Vienne

Œuvres mythiques du Street Art - Street Art Passage de Vienne
Each week, HIYA Gallery looks back on the history of art and more precisely on the history of street art and its associated movements. We try to highlight the pioneers of this movement who have become legends, the mythical works that have left their mark in the history of street art, as well as important cultural events concerning the development of street art and graffiti, such as books rare or cult, exhibitions making reference in the history of the movement, films and other events.

We believe that in order to understand and feel the art of our time, we must constantly learn where it came from and what its roots are. That is why, alongside the representation and promotion of artists, we want to share with you knowledge about the history of street art.

Invader - Vienna Street Art Passage


The HIYA Gallery series 
places and works legendaries of street art present you a work by famous French street artist Invader on display at the Street Art Passage in Vienna, Austria.

The Street Art Passage takes the visitor to Vienna's museum quarter, the “Museumsquartier”. This tunnel has been “invaded” by Invader. This time his work is larger, but it still represents the famous space invaders. This blue and black mosaic gives a surreal feeling to the passer-by, like a walk in the world of the famous video games, while contrasting with the traditional museums present in the surroundings. 

Invader's black and blue mosaic was created in the Quartier 21 + Museum Quartier in Vienna as part of the Invaded Bridges - Street Art Passage project in 2008. Its alias set a new record at the Artcurial Urban Art auction in 2019. The work, which measures 165x236 cm, was sold for € 356, costs included.
