Art of OR's

Street artist Invader has covered a large portion of the planet with his iconic video game inspired pixel art characters. He’s installed his tile based artworks in at least 40 cities and 30 countries. These missions aren’t just quick bombing runs either. Invader spends 2-3 weeks in each location placing little invaders in strategic locations. He’s recently branched out into creating large QR Code murals. The juxtaposition of black and white tiles echo his classic invader characters and combine hi-tech digital codes with the very low-tech ceramic tiles. When scanned, the pieces give out hidden messages like “This is an invasion”.
