Space Invader

Invader is a French urban artist with thousands of mosaics in more than 60 cities around the world. In his own words, “The idea is to “invade” cities all over the world with characters inspired by first-generation arcade games, and especially the now classic Space Invaders. I make them out of tiles, meaning I can cement them to walls and keep the ultra-pixelated appearance…  I see them as a symbol of our era and the birth of modern technology, with video games, computers, the Internet, mobile phones, hackers and viruses. And “space invader” is a pretty good definition of what I’m doing… invading spaces!”

Invader has a free smart phone app called Flash Invaders to “spot and “flash” the street mosaics of Invader. Fill your gallery, score points and compete with other players.”
