Venice-based artist Peeta‘ work has an amazing art style that takes the digital familiar into the real world, like pixelated sculptures. He merges his passions for graffiti writing, sculpture, and design in his large-scale spray murals that look like swirling three dimensional objects that float just above a wall or canvas. The artworks take on the form of graffiti-like letterforms but aren’t necessarily meant to be read or deciphered. Instead the pieces focus more on the use of line, shadow, and color to build impressive voluminous shapes that explode in every direction.
Peeta created this latest mural for the HKWALLS festival. The piece occupies a giant facade on a busy Hong Kong intersection above the Golden Computer Arcade and draws its color for neighboring buildings and signs.
