On Monday I managed to see two of the latest reactivated Invader street art pieces in Manchester.
The French street artist Invader visited Manchester in 2004 and put up 47 pieces of mosaic tile art with a total points value of 970. They look superb.

Over the years some have been damaged, removed and stolen. While some have been lost because the building they were on was knocked down!
That was the case for MAN_15.

Invader has invaded 78 cities around the world, putting up 3779 pieces in total.

In the UK Invader has also invaded London and Newcastle and we've managed to find a few of his pieces on trips to the two cities.
During my latest trip to Manchester I also saw some of Mr Do Not's stickers in town.

|No photos and no love|
And I noticed a new sticker has been added to the large Invader piece MAN_45.
