Rubik Mona Lisa sold for $800,000

An image of the Mona Lisa made from Rubik Cubes pieces has sold for a record price.

The mosaic version of the painting, made out of Rubik’s Cube squares, has sold at auction for over half a million dollars.

The artwork was created by anonymous French street artist Invader.

The Mona Lisa, by Leonardo da Vinci, lives in the Louvre Gallery in Paris. It is one of the most famous paintings in the world.

Who is Invader?

Invader used the plastic puzzles’ squares to create a mosaic of the Mona Lisa and her famous smile in bright colours.

Invader is known for his mosaic tile works. They often feature pixelated versions of old Space Invaders video game characters, which “invade” cities around the world.

Invader wears a mask and insists on his face being pixelated for his rare appearances on camera.

We wonder what masterpiece he’ll recreate next!
