The work and moniker of street artist Space Invader is inspired by the 1980’s Japanese arcade video game sensation “Space Invaders.” The artist’s mosaics are large renderings of the digitally pixelated alien from the video game, and the tile-works come in various sizes and colors. We found this example of Space Invader in the trendy and gallery-filled Saint Germain-des-Pres neighborhood of Paris, which like many central nabes in the French capital is made up of expensive residential and commercial real estate.
