Invader at Yamazaki Wine Store, Hiroo, Shibuya, Tokyo, 2017

This Yamazaki Store building went through a renovation a few years ago and, instead of taking down Invader’s mosaic, they actually painted the building matching his colors by using green windows and the same bege in the walls. Invader is a very popular French urban artist, well known for his ceramic tile pixelated mosaics usually inspired on video games or aliens from the 70’s arcade game, Space Invader, like the one at the Yamazaki store. It is always funny to find Invader’s mosaics throughout cities and, to find one of his aliens, inside a wine bottle in a Wine Store makes it even better.
