Invader, also commonly referred to as Space Invader, is a pseudonym used by a French Artist. The name comes from the classic 1978 arcade game Space Invaders. This individual identifies as an Unidentified Free Artist. He is very much secretive about his identity, but it is known that he graduated from Les Beaux-arts de Paris and la Sorbonne university. Why the secrecy? Well, Invader stays behind a mask so that he can visit his own exhibits without visitors knowing who he is.
The Space Invaders Project Began In 1998
This idea came about to free fine art from the restrictions that museums and institutions often put upon it. The objective was also to liberate the video game characters from television screens and bring them out into the physical world. In the beginning, Invader wanted to create canvases to accomplish this feat. However, he soon discovered that ceramic tiles were the ideal material. They allowed him to adhere the pieces to the walls in Paris and construct pixelized versions of the characters. Now, fine art can be seen in various cities across the globe.

However, this is not an uncommon feature on Invader's works due to his signature square tiling methods. Don't delay too long and let this art slip through your fingers.
