Portuguese artist Sergio Odeith makes stunning 3D graffiti optical illusions that evoke the feeling of spatial depth by tricking the eye with clever uses of color, shadow, perspective, even using the ground under where his work is featured to add to the overall effect. Painting on more than one surface he creates a feeling of floating objects, insects and most of all, 3D graffiti letters. The end results of his endeavours are remarkable.

The talented street artist left school at the age 15 and never had art lessons, but has succeeded in having a varied career, all in visual arts, from owning and running a tattoo studio to selling some of his fine art paintings on canvas. In 2008, he decided to close his tattoo studio (which he opened in 1999) and moved to London.

Odeith is a master and one of the pioneers of anamorphic 3D graffiti art and he’s been practicing his talents for 20 years and lives by the motto, “Never quit your dreams if you’re a dreamer. And sometimes, it may take a few years to earn credibility”. Today Odeith travels around the world sharing his art and his thoughts, inspiring young kids to paint and follow their dreams.

Here’s some information about him from his website:

Odeith was born in 1976, in Damaia (Portugal). He held a spray can for the first time in the mid 1980s, but it was in the 1990s, when graffiti began its dissemination throughout Portugal and began to leave its Portuguese birthplace, Carcavelos, that the artist had his first contact with graffiti and its movement. His first experiences were sketched on street walls and train tracks and so the passion he had always shown for drawing had a newly found purpose and began evolving. Not long after, came the opportunity to paint large scale murals in Damaia, Carcavelos and in many social housing neighbourhoods, such as Cova da Moura, 6 de Maio and Santa Filomena.

Early on, the artist showed a special interest in perspective and shading, in an obscure style, which he later called “sombre 3D”, where the compositions, landscapes or portraits, messages or homages, stood out for their realism and technique.

Odeith was, in 2005, internationally recognized for his groundbreaking incursions in the anamorphic art field, standing out for his compositions created in perspective and painted in different surfaces, such as 90º corners or from the wall to the floor, creating an optical illusion effect.
