Critical Review

In this print, Astro Boy’s full body is captured at the bottom-right of the composition. Invader draws two other iterations of Astro Boy, one which captures just his head, and another which captures his head and torso. By producing these different versions of the character, Invader draws attention towards his creative process and the way in which he approaches his drawings and the stages involved in their composition.

While Invader is a critically acclaimed artist, his true identity is unknown. Invader calls himself an ‘Unidentified Free Artist’ and tries to preserve his anonymity, like British street artist Banksy. Discussing the reason behind this, Invader explains, in part, it is because it means 'I can visit my own exhibitions without any visitors knowing who I really am even if I stand a few steps away from them’.
