New York Street Art … “Snow White” by Invader

This street art mosaic image of “Snow White” is by the French artist Invader (a.k.a., “Space Invader”) on the wall of a diner in New York City.

Space Invader on the High Line

Some recently discovered artwork by French artist Invader (a.k.a., Space Invader) on the High Line in Chelsea, in New York City. Invader is the cousin of Thierry Guetta, a.k.a., Mr. Brainwash, who was the subject of Banksy’s film, “Exit Through the Gift Shop.”

Space Invader-esque

This sticker street art looks a lot like a retro-1980s videogame image a la the well-known French artist Invader (sometimes called Space Invader after the seminal arcade game). But we have serious doubts that this stickers has anything to do with him. His medium is a set a tiles — not stickers — with which […]
