  7. 7. SPACE INVADER The mosaics are half-built in advance. When Invader arrives in a city he obtains a map and spends at least a week installing them. They are catalogued, photographed and Invader uses a map indicating their locations within the city. Typically, mosaics are located ten to fifteen feet above the ground, and often on street corners in areas of high visibility. Later, the maps, called "invasion maps", are sold in his online shop

  10. 10. The
mysterious
artist
known
only
as
"Stikman"
has been
infesting
urban
landscapes
with
art
for
more than
20
years.
His
work
is
sneaky,
incredibly thought
provoking
and
uncommonly
satisfying
to come
across,
and
if
you
have
been
living
on
the east
coast
or,
well,
basically
anywhere
in
the
states you
no
doubt
have
discovered
it
in
some
aspect.
  11. 11. “Graffiti
is
the
biggest and
most
open
art movement
in
human history.
It
is
the closest
to
free expression
we
have.”
  12. 12. “Humans
have
always
drawn
these
sort
of
simple characters,
it’s
just
our
way
of
showing
complex meaning
in
a
simple
way.
There
are
some
really beautiful
ones
in
a
cave
in
France
somewhere
that were
done
thousands
of
years
ago.”

  14. 14. STRANGELY…. There’s
not
a
lot
of
information
out
there
about
stikman He’s
almost
as
reclusive
as
Banksy,
but
nowhere
near
as
well
known. And
strangely
enough,
the
best
place
to
find
stikman’s
work
is
on Tumblr,
where
the
few
people
who
are
able
to
find
his
work
post
it
under #stikman
