Sunset (gold and blue), is a limited edition signed screen print by French street artist Invader, released in 2018 in an edition of 100. This print depicts one of Invader’s iconic Space Invader characters in white, against a background of blue and gold rays, radiating out from the centre.
The inspiration for Invader’s Space Invader character is drawn directly from an 80s video game, similarly entitled Space Invaders. The game’s retro, pixelated and low-resolution visuals form the basis of Invader’s own iconic artistic style. First rising to fame in the 90s, Invader became known after he graffitied these video game characters onto buildings around Paris, later venturing abroad.
The video game Space Invaders was originally designed in Japan by Tomohiro Nishikado. Additionally, the background of Sunset (gold and blue) evidently draws inspiration from Japan’s Rising Sun Flag, which is composed of a red sun in the centre, and red and white rays spanning out from the centre. This traditional Japanese flag influenced the composition of Invader’s background here. Enraptured by the video game in his youth, Invader was similarly captivated by Japanese culture, as Japanese imagery and objects frequently appear across his artistic output.
