I’ve been interested in graffiti art lately trying to incorporate it into certain spaces and designs because of its authentic street character. It feels so real. This is the first time however that I come across the work of the talented Peeta, who mastered the art of 3D graffiti by learning from those around him during his years in Italy. His art is become pretty popular and has begun to emerge in Mexico, the U.S, and Canada in addition to numerous countries around Europe. He also has a lot of his art done on canvases and are for sale.
About Peeta (Own Words)
I’ve started to paint in a little town between Venice and Padova (Italy) by my self, without any reference. As I grew up I’ve started to move in Padova and Venice, I met many other graffiti writers, they gave me insight, and my style during the years evolves quickly from a kind of organic style to 3D style. Since 2000 i am a member of the EAD crew from Padova, this crew was born in 1991, it’s a crew with breakers, writers and music. Since 1999, I’ve started to travel around Europe, and I’ve been invited in many shows exhibitions and mostly to graffiti jams and meetings, like the Meeting of Styles. Since 2003 I am a member of the FX crew from New York City, this is a really old school crew since the 80’s. During the last years I’ve been travelling to US and Mexico, and from 2006 I am a member of the RWK crew from New York. In the last six years I used to paint on canvas, and to do sculptures. Sculpting and painting, but also the photography are, in my opinion, disciplines that help each other. Every time I make a sculpture I receive a lot of knowledge about 3D space and shapes, that’s help me to paint in a better way. And while I’m painting i develop new ideas for new sculptures. It’s a kind of circle.
