Invader’s Warhol on the Standard East Village

​Invader wasn’t done with the Lower East Side, after all. The French-based street artist embedded at least four more 8-bit mosaics of interest around the neighborhood the last few days.

Andy Warhol received the video game treatment with a piece on the south-facing exterior of the Standard East hotel. Aged, with tufts of white hair.

Woody Allen is also part of this exclusive club. His likeness – backed by token Invaders – now watches over the corner of 4th Street and First Avenue.

Lastly, a second Ninja Turtle mosaic appeared above the entrance to Kiki’s on Orchard Street. Raphael … who’s cool but rude. Coupled with Williamsburg Pizza, both Leonardo and Raphael are now accounted for. But where will Michaelangelo and Donatello surface?

Bonus: Invader’s interpretation of Spiderman also swung into the facade of the recently departed Chase Bank on Second Avenue.

Of Arts and Oats: OATLY Over Little Italy

The long-shuttered Miss Paradis restaurant has been an eyesore of Little Italy since before the pandemic.

Its gleaming rooftop apple did not live […]
