As we mentioned last week – Space Invader has been hitting Tokyo hard with a load of fresh new pieces going up in the Japanese capital. There are some really great pieces cropping up, including original Invaders and tiled versions of Japanese cult icons like Astroboy, Doraemon, Hello Kitty and Grendizer. It’s also been reported by Invader himself that a mini Mona Lisa piece has already disappeared, we’re hoping that’s not a sign of things to come.
If you follow Invaderwashere you would’ve seen the re-invasion of Tokyo taking place this week. There are some really great pieces going up, including a glow-in-the-dark Invader and tiled versions of Japanese cult icons Astroboy and Grendizer.
We’re only posting the one photo from Invaderwashere, so make sure you visit the Instagram account for all the photos. We’ll have more soon.
Space Invader has been busy on the streets of Paris, placing a few new pieces in the French capital. The new additions to the ‘PA’ series are a real mixture of styles; the traditional looking PA-1096 first appeared on Invaders Instagram a few weeks ago, the huge PA-1096 has been distracting drivers on the Parisian highway since last week and the ‘Mona Lisa’ inspired PA-1097 (which is equally massive and brilliant) can be seen outside The Louvre-Rivoli Metro Station. Variety is the spice of life!
Here’s a final look at the recent invasion of Hong Kong.
It’s been one of our favourite invasions in a while so a big thanks to Ray for hunting down the pieces and allowing us to use his shots – make sure you check out his Flickr account. We’re hoping for a map in the shop sometime soon!
