Still Life With Pocari Can is a signed limited edition print released in 2014 in an edition of 50 by French street artist Invader. In this image, one of Invader’s iconic Space Invader characters is seen positioned next to a green apple and a blue can of pocari, a Japanese sports drink. Invader’s Space Invader character is taken directly from an 80s video game of the same name, designed by Tomohiro Nishikado in Japan. Given Invader’s love for this computer game, his fascination with other aspects of Japanese consumer culture was born; hence imagery and objects from Japan reappear across his works on paper.
The red Space Invader character is inspired by the characters populating Invader’s favourite childhood video game, also entitled Invaders. This retro, heavily pixelated, early video game now underpins the artist’s creative output and pseudonym through which he conceals his true identity.
The objects comprising Invader’s still life are pixelated to such an extent that they verge on being indistinguishable. This low-res quality has become Invader’s signature aesthetic style, whilst his Space Invaders are his trademark. In sum, Still Life With Pocari Can embodies the artistic qualities that make Invader so popular globally and instantly recognisable.
