We have run into French artist Invader's work all over the world. Our favorite spontaneous spotting was while walking down the street in Mombasa, Kenya. Now, Invader has quite literally taken his artwork out of this world! The first space invader mosaic art was found by European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti during her Futura mission on the International Space Station.

Allegedly, Invader was arrested while installing this Princess Peach mosaic in the Lower East Side in Manhattan the other night. Although, it looks complete so when was he exactly apprehended? We really don’t think it’s important whether or not this happened; we really just like the piece. And remember if you’re doing illegal street work in the police state that is New York, the probability of you getting arrested it high. So don’t be so surprised. It happens often. The building owner has taken it down with its fate unknown.

With the NYC premier of his short film opening tomorrow night at the Sunshine Cinema, Invader has declared (like many others right now) the Rotten Apple to be his current playground for installing mosaic tile works. Several new pieces have appeared high above the streets around Manhattan with various characters, our favorite starring Princess White eating an apple over a restaurant sign. A tiling of Donkey Kong has also popped up as well as Power Flower from Mario Bros. Like Banksy, Invader has started an Instagram so you can follow his "invasions" and play the street art treasure hunt game.

One of the most infamous space battle scenes in cinema has been re-created with a cartoony feel by Invader and installed out of reach in the streets of London.

Possibly one of our most favorite public installations from Parisian street artist, Invader, is this newest piece in Paris of the Pink Panther.

Scott Campbell has a heart. Sometimes it's a bloody heart that is somehow smiling while being held by Mola Ram, sometimes it's a heart in the form of robot, and sometimes it's his own heart, which he loosely splashes over hundreds of watercolor paintings that all have a heart of their own.

In thinking about waffles, French street artist, Invader, is set to open a new exhibition, Attack of the Space Waffles, at The Outsiders in London on December 2, 2011. The show will feature a Space Waffle Machine discpensing hot waffles throughout the exhibition for the gallery's Christmas visitors.
