If you are walking along the street and you take the time to look up, down or around, you might just notice a little tiled space invader mosaic. This isn’t a retro initiative spearheaded by some hip council member. It’s a funny little street art phenomena that I have started to notice more and more.
Rumour has it that the trend was started by a French street artist in Montemart, Paris. Legend has it that if you locate all the space invader tiles in Paris, and mark their coordinates on a map, you can play a game of join the dots to create a giant space invader across Paris. This phenomena has spread right across the Europe, though I don’t know if the same holds true for the entire continent!
This is a trio of little space invaders I snapped while wandering the sunny street of Barcelona.
