Photo Invasion is my Instagram project. I steal
pictures from Instagramers and add an
illustrative touch on them. For me it's a playful
way to see photography, apart of admiring the
image itself, I look for a new story hidden on it.
That way I create a new narrative and an
unexpected partnership with the photographer.
By day, Lucas Levitan works as a creative director for an
advertising company … but, by night, he makes hilarious
drawings that give a dimension of much needed hilarity
to otherwise boring photographs. Levitan has been
drawing his entire life, but never considered doing it
professionally until he had a near death experience.
While walking down Redchurch Street in London, a brick
fell off the scaffolding of a fourth floor building and
missed Levitan by mere inches. Having been faced
directly with his impending mortality, Levitan decided it
was time he started to do the things that he loves in life
… one of which being drawing.
While certainly, we would not wish any sort of harm on
this incredible artist – we have to say we are rather
thankful for that brick, because it inspired Levitan to
make these fantastic works of art!
