Located in the Belleville metro station, the Space Invader PA_689, one of the oldest and most famous of the capital, is making its return to the border of the 19th and 20th arrondissements.

This mosaic by Invader is probably the artist's longest, extending over 20 metres along a pavement edge.

Invader explains on Instagram that the original work dates back to 2006, but had been degraded over time and was almost non-existent. However, this was without the help of the "reactivators" community... Indeed, these Invader's fans reproduce the artist's mosaics identically, to then flash them, and earn points on the "FlashInvaders" application. It is these fans who have mobilised to renovate Invader's mosaic and thus embellish the streets of Belleville.
