This artist is responsible for perhaps the most recognisable street art stunt of the last decade. In a planet-wide war of attrition, the pixilated expansionist aliens from Toshiro Nishikado’s infamous 1978 arcade game Space Invaders stalked the Earth once more, appearing everywhere from on the ‘Hollywood’ letters to Jacques Chirac’s lapel. Despite a counter-attack in Los Angeles, where a local ”vigilante” group fought back against the Invaders defiling any they saw, eighty-five percent of the original put-ups remain. Gallic in origin, Space Invader’s work offers the viewer not only some tasteful Parisian-style vandalism but the opportunity to theorise wildly about what its purpose may be.

This work is sold on consignment. The tiles are untouched; the back has been opened.
