Street Art Invasion – by Invader

Alias NY_73 and Actual Invader

Invader is a street artist/sculptor, creating pieces that reflect the influence of technology on our society over the past 30 years or so.

Referencing the 1978 Atari video game, the artist began placing mosaics featuring “Space Invaders” on the streets of Paris in the late 1990s. Joined by “Pac Man” ghosts and other popular 8-bit characters, the works soon became a familiar sight to encounter in any urban environment. Invader’s usage of tile to create street art, rather than paint or stencil, is not only a unique choice of medium—it also emphasizes his commentary of how digital information networks have affected and transformed our society. — Bio from Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Each Invader that is placed on the street also gets one alias which is shown in exhibits.  Invader also creates large Rubik inspired sculptures and Rubik Mosiacs described as Rubikcubism. Checkout Invader’s portfolio for more.
