Critical Review

Hello My Game Is (blue) is part of Invader’s Hello My Game Is collection which is composed of a variety of prints produced from 2007 to 2017 all of which use the 8-bit visual register of arcade games. In January 2017 Invader exhibited some of the prints from the Hello My Game Is collection at his solo eponymous exhibition at the Musée en Herbe in Paris.

The alien depicted in this print is a character from the popular arcade game Space Invaders which was created by the Japanese gaming company Taito in 1978. Invader’s artistic style is deeply influenced by gaming and while the artist is best known for his depictions of characters from Space Invaders, the artist has also produced artworks inspired by other games such as Pac-Man.
