Invader - Low Res Mona Lisa
The silkscreen print entitled Low Res Mona, by legendary French street artist Invader, is a wonderful portrait in the style of 8-bit video games of the 1970s – 1980s. Invader is globally renowned for his pixelated works, which can be seen around the world. Instead of video characters, this time he plays with the best known and most parodied work of art – Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. If you ever wondered what would Mona Lisa look like as an 8-bit video character, here is the answer. We cannot see her famous smile, but this humorous and playful art piece will make everyone else smile. The work is signed, numbered and available for sale.

Best Ever - Untitled
This Untitled piece by Best Ever, the two like-minded painters and street artists from London, is a good representation of their work, which they describe as “anatomical mathematical realism” or “disturbed painterly realism.” They strive to portray the ugly side of life: death, illness, math, science and delicacy of human body. They are well known for painting human figures with anatomical and surgical precision, in grey and pastel colors. This work on canvas is not an exception. It is a portrait of a sad bald figure immersed in thoughts. While her big light eyes are brimming with worry and confusion, the icy and grey hues of this painting convey the sense of coldness which is in contrast with the deep emotions present in this piece. The work (51 x 41 cm) is unframed, signed by the artists and unique.
