Invader (artist)

Invader (born 1969) is the pseudonym of a French urban artist, whose work is modelled on the crude pixellation of 1970s–1980s 8-bit video games. He took his name from the 1978 arcade game Space Invaders, and much of his work is composed of square ceramic tiles inspired by video game characters. Although he prefers to remain incognito, his creations can be seen in many highly-visible locations in more than 65 cities in 33 countries. He documents each intervention in a city as an "Invasion", and has published books and maps of the location of each of his street mosaics.

The third and final mosaic I was able to get on my camera. It seems a bit has come off though. This was found on one of the bridges over the river, which leads straight to the Eiffel Tower with only about a 5 minute walk.

The second mosaic we found, unfortunately I had to take this photo in a split second from the moving bus, so I could not zoom in on it, but I feel very lucky to have gotten a clear shot at all. This is on the wall of a hotel, which I have forgotten the name, but if my memory serves me correct it is fairly close to the river, opposite side of the Eiffel Tower.

During my spring break trip to Paris, Lucerne, and Munich with my school, another art student whom I had a class with and I made it our mission in Paris to find Space Invader's mosaics. We found 4, I only have pictures of the first 3 though. Here is the one we found in the Latin District.
