Peeta’s Illusionary Wall, Canvas Paintings

Venice-based artist Manuel Di Rita, who works under the moniker Peeta, creates illusionary paintings that create new dimensions out of the walls and canvases they inhabit. Whether he’s using spraypaint, oils, or or acrylic latex house paint on wood panels in the jungle, the artist is able to play with the existing architecture and perspectives to create entirely new ones. At times, he works with the geometric art of Joys to create playful collaborations in dynamic dialogue.

“In my pictorial, sculptural and mural compositions my geometrical shapes act as they interact with the surrounding environment,” the artist says. “In particular, when painting on walls, I have always been aiming to create a dialogue with the structural and cultural parameters of the surrounding context, either architectural or not.”
