A few days ago, famous street artist Invader announced a few new pieces in Djerba, at locations where the first Star Wars movie was filmed.

In 1976 G. Lucas went to Djerba to shoot two scenes of the first Star Wars movie. One of them was the house of Obi-Wan Kenobi. I found back the actual house and did this tribute on it. #obiwankenobi #starwars #Djerba #DJBA39 / Star Wars: A new hope / Original despecialized version 32’ 14“
Then came the comments:
love Invader…love Star Wars…but don’t love this
Placement of outdoor art is something worth talking about. Outdoor art is a conversation with an environment, and not everyone is supposed to agree that the artist made the “best decision.” There are many fans of the project, and a few people who think he should have left the place alone. That is the point of outdoor art, that’s all part of the conversation.
