If you were to ask us to name the artist we feel most embodies street art sensibility, there’s no question that we’d put French artist Invader at the very top of our list. It was Invader’s tile mosaics that became our entry point for discovering that street art could be so much more than just stencils, stickers, and wheat paste posters.

 

For more than a decade, Invader has been getting up with a vengeance, not only hitting countless cities around the world—but hitting them hard. Real hard. For us, the best thing about coming across a Space Invader tile is that you know the man put it there himself. Like Banksy, Invader’s choice for anonymity only adds to his intrigue and mystique.

 

While every creative movement has its superstars and celebrities, only a few true icons exist. And Invader is most definitely one of those very few who have achieved that well-deserved icon status.—Marc and Sara Schiller, Wooster Collective
