Inspired by graffiti writing and shapes, Peeta has taken his street art into the realm of 3D, creating sculptures that express the forms of graffiti art with physical depth and perspective. Peeta creates his sculptures either out of polyurethane, which he then spray paints. Other materials include cardboard, wood, fabric, graphite and cellulose actetate. Each material creates a different texture and visual weight. Those made from cellulose have a slick, plasticky effect, while those made from cardboard or cloth express the textures of their material.
Peeta tends to create 3D graffiti sculptures with one, two or three colours. By creating a piece with only one color, Peeta is able to change the nature of the art work by lighting it with different colors. This means the piece is versatile and the impact it has on the viewer can be modified to suite a situation.
Peeta’s non-sculptural graffiti also has a distinct 3-dimensional feeling to them, fitted with strong highlights and shadows to give the piece perspective. You can see Peeta’s graffiti paintings and sculptures on his website and Facebook page.
