Video Game Culture Gets Represented
Another “nameless” urban artist, this one works under the alias of Invader.
His work is well-known across the globe for pixelated collages of relatively small tiles that mimic the graphic stylings of the iconic video game called Space Invaders.
This image shows one of his typical creations — a character made of colorful squared pieces “glued” on part of a wall.
He often uses recognizable elements of popular culture and alters them with his pixelized approach so they can have a new life as artifacts of urban culture in the only gallery that is always open and accessible to everyone — the streets of the cities he creates on.
