Critical Review

The print was used by Invader to draw attention to his impressive installation project, Space Invaders. The project, which Invader started in 1998, involves the artist travelling to cities all over the world and installing mosaic aliens onto the street walls of the city. Describing himself as an 'Unidentified Free Artist,’ the installations are always created during the night as Invader strives to preserve his anonymity.

Invader aims to display around 20 to 50 mosaics in every city he ‘invades.’ The artist has developed a points system in which points are allocated to each artwork depending on their placement and success. After each invasion, Invader scores and ranks the city. Looking closely at Invasion De Paris reveals the score of this invasion: 21760 points.
