Throughout the world, graffiti is an art form that is universally known and respected. The art travels by train and is plastered across public walls within any city you visit. To stand out and not only become respected, but also internationally renowned and celebrated takes an incredible amount of skill but most of all, creativity. And creativity is exactly what sets the illusion artist Odeith apart from the rest…
Odeith is an internationally known graffiti artist from Portugal who has been writing since the 80’s. He is most known for his 3D wall murals, but also does murals featuring pictures of faces, or unique landscapes. He was pioneer in this original form to draw 3D letters on different surfaces, corners or 90 degrees walls passing to the ground creating an optical illusion effect (anamorphic art).
In the mid 90´s Graffiti left the cradle “Carcavelos” and began to spread to other lands, that was when for the first time I saw Graffiti, that’s how I started painting in the train lines and street walls, after a year I met other writers who were part of the movement and thus had knowledge what graffiti was.
I enjoyed checking out his work. Now that this is finished, I’m off to the store to grab some paint cans.
