Fontainebleau Invaded: The Mosaic Art of Street Artist Invader Takes Over the Historic Town, 2023

French artist Invader has installed new mosaics in the Fontainebleau forest area in Seine-et-Marne; this is the 7th wave of the invasion of Fontainebleau with 28 new pieces. The artist was drawn to the region because of the beauty of its landscapes, which contrasted with his usual urban interventions.

Fontainebleau has a rich history that dates back to the 12th century and has been the residence of many French monarchs. Today, Fontainebleau is a popular tourist destination, attracting visitors from all over the world who come to explore the charming streets and the beauty of the forest, marvel at the stunning architecture and the historic Chateau, and immerse themselves in the town’s fascinating history.

Known for his pixelated mosaics, Invader has once again left his mark throughout Fontainebleau, with his art blending seamlessly into the surroundings. Visitors can spot his invasions on walls, bridges, poles and buildings, adding a modern twist to the town’s historical charm.

The Fontainebleau forest is a breathtaking natural wonder southeast of Paris, France. Covering over 250 square kilometres, it is one of the most extensive forests in the region and is home to an incredible array of flora and fauna. Fontainebleau forest offers a tranquil retreat from the chaos of urban living. Invader understands the value of this serene landscape, and his mosaic invasions of the area blend seamlessly into the surroundings.

Invader’s creations draw inspiration from the region’s rich history and its profound association with art, writers, musicians and artists. One of his new notable works includes a tribute to the legendary jazz musician Django Reinhardt, placed in front of his residence in Samois-sur-Seine. The town holds a significant place in Reinhardt’s life as he spent his retirement years there until his passing. Invader’s artwork pays homage to the musician’s unparalleled contribution to the world of Jazz music.
