Street art as a provocation: 3D Optical illusions, which are called ” temporary violation of normality»

The art of this artist causes a lot of controversy. Someone calls his work a provocation, someone-unprofessionalism and stupidity. But there are also those who believe that his work is a breakthrough in street art and his creativity should be implemented in all cities of the world, because it is high time to make gray boring buildings more fun. But both opponents and fans of his work agree on one thing: such street art is simply stunning.
Italian artist Manuel Di Rita, also known as peeta, is 39 years old. He was born in Padua, and currently lives in Venice. Pete has been doing graffiti since 1993, and for many years he has participated in jams, festivals and art shows around the world. His works are mostly in the style of anamorphism – both in painting and sculpture. Interestingly, Manuel received an education in product design.

 

The abstract shapes that Pita uses to paint buildings, as well as free-standing walls and interiors, create bizarre optical illusions. It seems that part of the building crashes into the sky (or does the sky crash into the building?) Then you catch yourself thinking that you do not understand, two – or three-dimensional image in front of you. Visual distortion of surfaces is achieved by Manuel using 3d graffiti.
The artist himself says about his work: “in my paintings, sculptures and murals, geometric shapes always interact with the environment. In particular, when I paint pictures on walls, my goal is always to create a dialogue with the structural and cultural parameters of the surrounding context. I rearrange the volumes of any surface, thus causing a “temporary violation of normality”in my paintings.

As a result, people who see these wall images create a different understanding of space, and therefore of reality in General. Thanks to the Italian artist’s anamorphic painting, traditional forms are transformed, changing from irregular and smooth to geometric solids.
When creating his works, the artist actively uses Illustrator and Fotoshop programs. it usually takes him three weeks to create each composition.
Users of the Internet, discussing the work of Manuel Di Rita, is always hot I bet. Some say that there is no sense in his art, others – that there is no professionalism. Still others retort: “But his bizarre figures simulate those parts of the brain that a resident of a megalopolis usually “sleep”.

Someone enthusiastically says that they would like to live in a house painted in 3d-they say that it is much more fun. And some people think these colorful drawings are so “loud” that they admit that seeing them every day, just go crazy. But there are definitely no indifferent people
