Biography

Invader is an anonymous French street artist best known for pixelated mosaics installed in cities around the world.

Invader

“What I do and create is more important than who exactly I am.”

Invader’s works are composed of tiles resembling the vintage graphics from the video game Space Invaders, the source of the artist’s pseudonym. “I have never been tempted to reveal my identity,” the artist has said. 

Like Banksy and Shepard Fairey, Invader uses public space as a canvas and has “invaded” streets on an international scale with a unique brand of graffiti, taking imagery from popular culture and translating it into chunky, retro graphics. Born in 1969 in Paris, France, Invader continues to live and work in the city.
