Critical Review

Here, the character is a bright pink, set against a black drop upon which dots of various colours have been placed in a regular formation. Resembling an LED screen, as the title would suggest, the dots form a background image of mountains against a night sky. The image in its entirety mimics a retro video game screen, giving the sense that one is looking at a video game, rather than an artwork.

Rising to fame in the 90s, Invader has become famous globally for his pixelated video game characters which formed the basis of his street art works in Paris. These grafiti works have now ‘invaded’ cities all across the globe and have become a trademark for the artist.
