Italian artist Peeta got his start writing graffiti in the late 1990s. Since then, he has channelled his passion for letters into a unique form of calligraphy. While graffiti writers of his generation pioneered the technique of distorting letterforms into abstract shapes, Peeta takes this concept one step further by treating characters as three-dimensional objects. His technique is very much tromp l’oeil and creates a convincing illusion of depth and weight. Peeta’s solo show “Parallel Realities” opens at Montana Gallery in Barcelona on February 6. The artist will debut a new series of paintings as well as geometric sculptures inspired by letterforms. Take a look at our preview of the show below.
