This example of street art by French artist Invader in Tokyo is probably one of the best we’ve seen in recent months. The pixelated Space Invader videogame icon here has been created on a larger scale than most of the mosaic artworks Invader has put up around the Japanese capital and elsewhere around the world. We found this one in the quiet cool-kids neighborhood of Naka-Meguro.
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. The artwork is made up of small tiles like all of Invader’s street art pieces, but the use of the animated Disney character Snow White represents a sharp departure in the pop-culture imagery the artist is famous for referencing, namely the iconic graphics of 1980s videogame Space Invader. The “Snow White” artwork pictured above is at the corner of Delancey and Essex streets in New York’s Lower East Side and near the famous “blue” condo building (left) by architect Bernard Tschumi.
The ubiquitous Adam Cost put up these Space Invader wheatpaste posters recently in the Lower East Side of New York. The iconic, classic videogame graphic images is a subtle nod to the presence of French street artist Invader who was visiting New York that week for a film launch and putting up a lot of his famous Space Invader mosaic street-art installations around downtown.
Here’s another of the new New York City-themed “Big Apple” Space Invader street art mosaics by pioneering French street artist Invader. This one is at the New Museum on the Bowery and is one of several that have popped up in downtown New York City, mostly in the Lower East Side, the past few days while the artist is in town for the screening of his new film “Art4Space.
French street art suprstar Invader (a.k.a., Space Invader) is back in New York City, re-invading the Lower East Side where he’s been putting up some new mosaic artworks the past few days. We spotted this fresh New York-themed “Big Apple” Space Invader piece on a tenement building, above the entrance to the bar Marshall Stack, at the northwest corner of Allen and Rivington streets in the LES. Invader’s visit to NYC coincides with the screening of his new film “Art4Space” and comes on the heels of British street art phenom Banksy’s month-long residency in the city.
Invader (a.k.a., Space Invader), the French international super-duper street-art star, put up another of his iconic mosaics on the Bowery in NoHo, in downtown New York City. We just noticed this work, but it looks slightly worn already, like it’s been around for awhile. And we’re wondering — if it has been around for a while — how we missed it, since we walk or ride by this spot a couple of times a week.
