mixed media on canvas 60 x 60 cm Also known as Manuel Di Rita, Peeta became famous at first for his graffitis in 1993. Currently living in Venice, he is now a contemporary artist specialized in sculptural and mural compositions, characterized by geometrical shapes interacting with the surrounding environ- ment. His ambition is to create a dialogue between sculpture and culture. The artist also works with individual letters, especially the ones making up his moniker ‘Peeta’, thus combining writing with a three-di- mensional style and giving a unique rhythm to his oeuvre. In his “anamorphic” works, Peeta designs new volumes and shapes involving many surfaces from his environment. He causes a certain interruption of normality and provokes a rupture between time and space by altering perceptions and forms. Hence, he embodies new perspectives and allows visual tricks in his pictorial representations.
