The rumor we heard a few weeks ago proves true. As we exclusively reported in early November, Invader was, in fact, arrested at the corner of Bowery and Delancey minutes after installing a 9-foot Ninja Turtle atop 161 Bowery (allegedly with permission). His Instagram account reveals the photo evidence of the incident.
He was let go a day later, though.
Invader spilled the beans on social media nearly a month later, likely to avoid any future altercations while working around the city. The French-based mosaic maker departed last week after spending weeks imparting 8-bit interpretations of pop icons around the Five Boroughs.
The L.I.S.A. Project, which was instrumental in bringing Invader to our shores, confirmed that approximately forty-two pieces were embedded in various buildings around the city. Personal favorites include the Lou Reed, Woody Allen, Ninja Turtles, and Ramones.
