Critical Review

The alien character depicted in Alert: System Infected (blue and red) can be seen alongside Alert: System Infected (black and red) which was produced earlier in 2001. The print has a similar design but uses a different colour scheme. Both prints were inspired by the popular arcade game, Space Invaders, which was created by Japanese game manufacturer Taito in 1978. Space Invaders plays a fundamental role in Invader’s artistic career, even the artist’s pseudonym was inspired by the game.

The use of mosaic tiles in Alert: System Infected (blue and red) captures the essence of Invader’s visual language and has become a trademark feature of the artist’s style. The effect of using these tiles is that Invader’s artworks resonate with the 8-bit visual register of arcade games.
