Invader (born 1969) is a French urban artist who pastes up characters from and inspired by the 1978 arcade game Space Invaders, made up of small coloured square mosaic tiles that form a space invader character mural. He does this in cities across the world. He then documents this as an “Invasion”, with books and maps of where to find each invader.
Invader is responsible for perhaps the most recognizable street art stunt of the last decade. In a planet-wide war of attrition, the pixilated expansionist aliens from Space Invaders stalked the Earth once more, appearing everywhere from on the ‘Hollywood’ letters to Jacques Chirac’s lapel. His website was started in 2008.
