Face Invader, aka Rebecca Ward, has been creating theatrical disguises for the past six years for clients including Matthew Williamson and the V&A Museum.
It was during her 26 year career as DJ TBX that Rebecca decided her DJ persona needed a disguise. Liberated by the revelation of theatrical disguise, she recalled the skills she had learned at fashion college and began to make masks, hats, wigs and headdresses for personal, and private commissions. Hence, Face Invader was born. Face Invader's ready-to-wear masks, hats and headdresses can be viewed and purchased from Wall & Jones, a unique fashion boutique based on Hackney Road, E8.
In response to E17 Art Trail's theme, STEAM, Rebecca created Matronix (Future Pagan Goddess of Illusion and Infinity) (right) a piece that fused together her three favourite artists: MC Escher, HR Giger and Daft Punk.
