Invader | Lougher Contemporary

b. 1969


In the late 1990s, an anonymous French artist known as Invader began solidifying his reputation by affixing ceramic mosaic Space Invaders—iconic characters from the classic 1978 video game—across the streets of Paris. Over time, he expanded his repertoire to include Pac-Man ghosts and other beloved 8-bit figures, and his mosaic installations now grace cities worldwide, from Los Angeles to Kathmandu. In addition to these covert street artworks, Invader has ventured into creating mosaics on Perspex panels, plywood, and book covers. His artistic output also encompasses paintings, drawings, and screen prints, all rendered in his distinctive pixelated style. These pieces frequently command six-figure sums in the secondary market. In a notable milestone, in 2019, astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti transported one of Invader’s artworks to the International Space Station, orbiting approximately 248 miles above Earth. Invader's international acclaim is underscored by exhibitions held in major cities such as Los Angeles, Paris, Brussels, and Hong Kong, reflecting his enduring influence and global reach in contemporary art circles.

About the artist

Self-described as the 'Unidentified Free Artist,' the enigmatic French street artist known as Invader has garnered international acclaim for his distinctive pixelated tile mosaics. Maintaining anonymity behind a mask, Invader's artworks, inspired by the 1978 arcade game Space Invaders, have been clandestinely installed in cities worldwide.

Born in Paris, France in 1969, Invader adopted his pseudonym from the iconic video game that serves as the cornerstone of his artistic vision. His true identity remains shrouded in mystery, with no public sightings of his face ever recorded. Invader himself asserts, "as such, I can visit my own exhibitions without any visitors knowing who I really am even if I stand a few steps away from them."

A graduate of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Invader launched his renowned Space Invaders project in the 1990s, staging global 'invasions' by installing his mosaic artworks in cities across the world. His covert installations, characterized by their pixelated aesthetic and cultural resonance, have solidified his status as a pioneering figure in contemporary street art.
