Street Artist Creates Impressive 3D Tags That Completely Blur the Line Between Drawing and Reality
A graffiti is not always a simple drawing on a wall. Have you ever seen one of those trompe-l’oeil that completely disturbs the vision and the consciousness of the one who looks at them from a certain angle? This is the trademark of Lisboa street artist Sergio Odeith, who began by making more classic tags,but who now has fans all over the world, and who has even signed contracts with Coca-Cola, Samsung and Shell.
Sergio Odeith began his relationship with the world of graffiti in the 1990s in Portugal, in Lisbon, his hometown. Like most street artists, he first worked illegally. Later, he became interested in 3D graphics, which he called 3D shadow (“Shaded 3D”): composition, perspective,details and shadows create a realistic image, which seems to float in the air, in front of the wall on which it is drawn.
