DEKISHI on Flickr posted this morning that some of the LA Invaders are either painted over or have had their tiles chipped off. He listed the following that he’s checked out: LA 086, LA 092, LA 093, LA 105, LA 080 & LA 046 are all destroyed.
I haven’t been out to confirm any of this, but I’m curious to hear if anyone else knows if it’s the city treating it as if it’s grafitti or if it’s just some stoopid dicks defacing them. I guess I shouldn’t have expected them to remain untouched forever, but there are so many I haven’t seen yet.
Most b.la readers will remember the recent exhibition at sixspace by Invader, rubikcubism and that Los Angeles was graced with some lovely new space-invaders to supplement the ones that were installed back in ’99 and were followed by several other waves.
