Critical Review

The alien depicted in this composition is a character from the famous arcade game, Space Invaders, which was created by Japanese game manufacturer Taito in 1978. The game had a strong influence on Invader and the development of his artistic career and inspired his iconic installation project, the Space Invaders project which the artist started in 1998.

Invader calls himself an ‘Unidentified Free Artist’ and this label refers to the fact that the artist consciously hides his true identity, like British street artist Banksy. Invader often appears behind a mask to preserve his anonymity and tends to erect his alien installations at night to avoid being seen by members of the public. Invader explains that one of the reasons he wanted to remain an anonymous artist was so that he could visit his art exhibitions without any of the visitors there knowing that he was the artist.
