Beginning his practice in the late 1990s, Invader is an anonymous French street artist best known for his pixelated mosaics. His works are inspired by vintage graphics and video games, with his own moniker taking inspiration from the video game, Space Invaders. Composed from single tiles, Invader's murals resemble classic 80s graphics, evoking a deep sense of nostalgia. Like other street artists, Invader uses public space as a canvas and aims to 'invade' the world on an international scale. From Manchester to Marrakech, Invader's work can be found across the globe. In 2015, Invader went interstellar, teaming up with the European Space Agency to get a mural in space, proving that the artist's reach truly has no limits.
