Street artist Invader is one of the biggest names on the contemporary scene, best known for his 'invasions'. Through his works, Invader recreates the alien characters from the video game using small ceramic tiles to reproduce the pixels of the original graphics and spreads them throughout the cities he 'invades'.

Invader, an internationally renowned street artist, was born in 1969 in Paris, the city where he still lives and works. In 1998, after finishing his studies at the École des Beaux-Arts, he began to develop his Space Invaders project, which consists of the creation and posting in public spaces of creatures inspired by the aliens from the Arcade Game Space Invaders. In order to reproduce the pixels of the video game's graphics, Invader uses small ceramic tiles inspired by the ancient mosaic technique. Ravenna, city of mosaics par excellence, is one of the 65 cities that the artist Invader has reached with his urban interventions.
The French street artist has also created Invasion guides, maps and an app to help fans find his works. Invader has exhibited his work in major museums such as MOCA in Los Angeles, the Musée en Herbe in Paris and the HOCA Foundation in Hong Kong.
In 2010, the Wunderkammern gallery collaborated with the artist in the realisation of 'Invasion' in Rome.
