Space Invader believes in the accessibly of art for all to enjoy which is why he makes his work public, installing his works at street level for bystanders to view. His work is consistent with mosaic themes incorporated with contemporary elements.Space Invader is a French urban artist born in 1969. He chose his pseudonym after the 1978 arcade game of the same name. His style of painting is largely influenced and modeled on this era of crude pixelated video games from the 70’s to the 80’s.
Space Invader chooses to remain anonymous, wearing a mask to guard his identity when he works in public, and most often he works at night. Keeping in theme with his influence of video game pixilation in his artwork, Space Invader has his face pixelated out when he gives an interview. He has claimed his parents believe he works as a tiler in the construction industry, a significant statement as most of his artwork is composed of ceramic tiles.
Space Invader creations are available to see in 33 countries and over 65 cities in highly visible locations. He has published books and maps in his wake, documenting where he has travelled, so those wishing to can visit the mosaics he has created.
