Space Invader:

“I have no limits with my invasions. The choice of the spots is a long process where I study the urban landscape and add something new in it. 99% of my pieces are illegal but I don’t see them like vandal acts but rather like a gift to the city. Varanasi in India is the only city where I have painted on the walls as a complement of installing mosaics. You can find all kind of painted advertisements all along the Gange River. With the help of one of the local wall painter, I added my own touch.”
