"Going into a city with tiles and cement and invading it," says anonymous French street artist Invader of his craft. "This is the most addictive game I have ever played." Invader began his signature practice in the late 1990s, plastering mosaic Space Invaders, a character from a 1978 Atari game, on the streets of Paris. Joined by Pac-Man ghosts and other popular 8-bit characters, the works soon became a familiar sight in cities around the world, from Los Angeles to Kathmandu. "Each time I put a new piece in the street, it is like a memorable exhibit," he says. Invader's signature use of mosaic tile design in his prints is a reference to the ubiquitous pixels of digital imaging and information.
