Catalogue Note

Since the late 1990's anonymous French contemporary artist Invader has dispersed his pixelated mosaic "Space Invaders" on walls and buildings in over 60 cities around the world. His first mosaic throw-ups were inspired by the 8-bit aesthetic from the first generation of video games invented in the 1970's. Since then his work has become more varied, and his characters have continued to "invade" cities around the world. Originally presented on the streets of Paris in 2015, PA_1177 is a classic example of Invader's characters which have been installed worldwide. This Alias is a recreation of the artwork in the street, created specifically for the gallery.
