Space Invader

Space invader is a French street artist who plays with the characters from old Atari console games. He sticks up his tiled pieces of work in cities all over the world labeling them as being space invaded. The pieces below are made entirely from rubics cubes and show famous scenes/people from films and fashion. The contrast between being simple and complicated is what appeals to me within his work. A pixelated image in a video game could be seen as being simple but when space invader has replicated these images in a much larger scales limited to 6 colours is suddenly becomes much more complex.
