    The Paris-based street artist who calls himself “Invader” (he keeps his real name a secret) created those pixelated mosaics. He has placed his ceramic tile creatures, inspired by the Space Invaders video game, on structures in 40 cities around the world. A total of 143 of his aliens landed in Los Angeles between 1999 and 2003, but few remain. Murky footage of the Invader’s covert installations can be seen in the documentaryExit Through the Gift Shop.
