Invasion!

Sometimes the timing of events in the world is just impeccable. You may recall that Rikke and I were recently in Paris. While there I took a shot of three invaders, from the classic game, on a wall in Montmatre.

Invaders

In nature it seemed like modern nerdcore streetart, but the care with which it looked to have been made was almost too intricate.

Then, a few days ago, the ever verbose Kotaku posted another invader, this one from Amsterdam! What the?!... And then today, yet another from Switzerland.

I had in other words stumbled onto a public secret, the work of an artist called Invader, present in cities across the world and with more flickr groups than you can shake a small colored tile at.

Well, now you know.
