Street art by French mosaic streetartist Invader.
This was the first one I saw, but I learned there are many, many more, not only in London, but everywhere.
First made in 1998 in Paris and now in 30 countries and 78 cities.
And this is the first one I saw!
This week (such a coincidence) there was an article about space invaders in our local newspaper.
So now I understand what it's all about.
It's based on a computer-game that was very popular in the late seventies, called Space Invaders. Nowadays there are people who want to see and 'collect' them all.
Last saturday, I was in Amsterdam. And there my husband and I found two invaders. Right in the centre of Amsterdam:
Searching for them is exciting! Finding them is very satisfying!
I don't expect these two to be the only ones we will find, hahaha!
