Venice-based artist Peeta blends his passions for graffiti writing, sculpture, and design in his large-scale spray paintings that look like swirling three-dimensional objects that float just above a wall or canvas. The trompe l’oeil artworks take on the form of graffiti-like letterforms but aren’t certainly meant to be read or deciphered. Instead, the pieces focus more on the use of line, shadow, and color to create remarkable bulky shapes that explode in every direction.
Peeta created this newest mural for the HKWALLS festival. The piece utilizes a giant facade on a busy Hong Kong intersection above the Golden Computer Arcade and draws its color for neighboring buildings and signs.
