I went and saw the Invader exhibition at the Lazardes Gallery in London at the weekend, I really need to start taking my camera out with me, I’m afraid you’re stuck with phone cam pictures again. I threw a quick shot in there of the back of the “Jaws” piece too so you can see how it looks. One thing that disappointed me when I first heard about them though is that he doesn’t “solve” them to make the images, rather he follows every child’s solution and just peels the stickers!
