Space Invaders

Space Invaders makes street art and gives a perfect example of how "street art" is different than graffiti.  There is no play with letters.  Space Invaders uses the iconic video game and makes it his a signature/brand.  The competitive part of this type of street art is the location of their work.  I remember seeing a couple pieces of Space Invaders in Paris and Barcelona and I was impressed at the effort it would take to get to some of these places.  The other part of this type of street art is the bravery it takes to do pieces in the more visible locations.  Space Invaders uses mosaic to do their work and it makes their work blend into the surroundings more than a lot of other street artists.   The photo above is one that I took when I came across them in Barcelona.  I know I saw their pieces about 6 or 7 times in a couple different cities, so they are really taking over!  Check out more of their work here.at Space-Invaders.com.  Also, if you've ever seen Exit Through The Gift Shop, you already know about Space Invaders.
