This is a study of the context and a deep will to make the mural perfectly mingle with the surrounding environment while it stands out at the same time causing a temporary interruption of normality. Its shapes follow the original lines of the architecture and at the same time, create new volumes and new voids, redesigning the original shape of the building.

Description

Artist Bio:

In my pictorial, sculptural and mural compositions, the geometrical shapes I design behave as they interact with the surrounding environment. In particular, when painting on walls, my aim is to create a dialogue with the structural and cultural parameters of the surrounding context, either architectural or not.

Initially, my works only realized the sculptural quality of individual letters, namely the ones that spelled out my own moniker, Peeta. Progressively, the fusion between traditional lettering and three dimensional style has given life to a unique kind of visual rhythm. Today, through my anamorphic works, I redesign the volumes of any kind of surface involved, thus causing with my paintings a 'temporary interruption of normality' by altering the perception of familiar contexts and so raising a different understanding of spaces and consequently, of reality on a whole.

Metaphorically, I want to neutralize preconceptions and urge the emergence of new perspectives. Anamorphism totally embodies the intent, always pivotal in my production, to reveal the deceptiveness of human perception, the fallacy of narrow and fixed points of view through visual tricks which, proceeding from the attempt to confer a three-dimensional semblance on a pictorial representation, ultimately reveal their will to deceive.

Due to my turn towards anamorphic painting, I choose to transform my traditional shapes in order to let them interplay with standard modules of architectonic structures, often changing them from irregular and smooth to geometrical solids.

Constantly running in parallel with my mural and painting activity, the role of sculpture comes to be essential for my overall production as it represents for me a direct contact with three-dimensionality in order to understand the rules of light, shadows and to reproduce them.

Manuel Di Rita, also known as Peeta, has been a graffiti artist since 1993 and is currently living in Venice. He is a member of the EAD crew (Padova, Italy), FX and RWK crews (New York City) and has participated, over the years, in jams, festivals and art shows all over the world. His work explores the potential of sculptural lettering and anamorphism, both in painting and in sculpture.
