The head of Malaga's CAC contemporary art gallery, Fernando Francés, is being formally investigated over the installation of works of street art around the city centre last spring.

The art consists of Space Invader-style icons made of mosaic tiles by the French artist known as Invader. The artist is also under investigation, alongside Francés, for damage to historical sites.

The eye-catching display, allegedly created in collaboration with the CAC, appeared overnight in prominent locations, including on the side of the bishops' palace.
